Two BA-projects receive grants at the graduation ceremony

The graduation ceremony for all DMJX students from four different educations was held Thursday the 27th of January simultaneously at our campuses in Aarhus and Emdrup, Copenhagen. Two photojournalism students received grants for their exam projects.

Photojournalist Emilie Lærke Henriksen and journalist Signe Stoumann Fosgrau received the Ritzau Sacnpix Prize for best photojournalistic BA-project with their online story about the youth in the religious movement Inner Mission.
The prize was handed over and motivated by head of the photojournalism programmes, Søren Pagter. In his motivation, he, among other things, focussed on the empathy in the story, the lack of prejudices plus the clever use of both stills and video.
