At its next meeting, the National Press Club's Photography Committee will hear from two early-career, yet award-winning photojournalists. The virtual event happens at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 1, and is open to all Club members, with free advance online registration requested.
The July 1 virtual meeting will be held by Zoom. Registration by June 29 is appreciated. Members signing up will receive an email with the link to Zoom session.
Attendees will meet Dorothy Mills-Gregg, who combines news reporting and photography in her work. She received a degree in journalism at Northwestern University in 2019, and that same year won first prize for news photography in National Press Club's annual awards contest. Mills-Gregg is a National Press Club and Photography Committee member.
Participants will also hear from Katina Zentz, a spring 2020 graduate from University of Iowa, majoring in art and journalism. At Iowa, Zentz served as photographer and creative director for the Daily Iowan, where she won the Iowa Newspaper Association's top awards in 2020 for best news feature photo and best slideshow. Just this month, Zentz took second place in the annual Hearst national photojournalism championship.
The Photo Committee's program is inspired by the National Press Club Journalism Institute's campaign to highlight outstanding new journalism colleagues receiving their degrees in this less-than-ideal academic and job-hunting year.
