Rose Engelland is photo editor at the Chronicle of Higher Education and is judging the Visuals category for the 35th Best of News Design™ competition. To get to know her better, we posed three questions:
You’re judging a lot of entries from other countries. How is that?
There is a lot of beauty. It’s touching to me. It’s like they are little works of art. It’s clear that people are still driven to create beauty and meaning. Some are superb, but some are crass. Some looked like ads instead of editorial.
What do you think of Syracuse?
I’m hoping we’ll get to go to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que. We need to have a field trip.
What are your passions?
Travel, food, African music. I used to play drums, but I don’t do that anymore.
