Vida Magazine was a class offered to a select group of students lead by Dr. Kim Bissell. The purpose of the class was to travel to Costa Rica to create a comprehensive online travel magazine.
My role on the team was as a photographer. I was paired with various writers and tasked with photographing interviews and creative images to accompany their stories.
Vida has won various awards including the 2019 Online Pacemaker Award. It was the recipient of the SPJ Regional Mark of Excellence Award for Best Independent Online Publication, Best Online Feature, and Best Podcast. All three categories moved on to Nationals where Vida won Best Podcast. Placed 17th in the Hearst Feature writing competition for “What’s in a Banana.”
