Jakob won with his video documentary “Stuck Where it Happened”, which he produced during his Photo I study at DMJX in the spring 2020.

The story is produced in the US, since Jacob and the other American exchange students were called back home due to the Corona crisis. The students continued to follow the online classes with teacher Simon Sticker. “Simon helped me craft the narrative visually and to shape the interview footage into a compelling script,” Jacob explains at the Facebook site from The Missouri School of Journalism, at University of Missouri.

As part of the honor, Jacob received a $1,000 award and qualified for the Hearst Journalism Awards National Multimedia Championship, which will be held in June.

Tristen Rouse, who also studied at Photo I in the spring 2020, received 20th place for multimedia narrative storytelling.
