Mary Woodson, assistant director of communications and public affairs and director of publications at Washington and Lee University, was awarded second place in the feature photography category of the Virginia Press Association’s annual contest on Saturday, April 21, during the VPA’s annual meeting in Roanoke.
The photograph, “Ferris Wheel,” was taken at the Raphine, Va., carnival in June 2011 and appeared in The News-Gazette. The photo placed second in the category for weekly newspapers with circulation between 5,000 and 10,000. It was the second time in as many years that one of Woodson’s photographs in the News-Gazette was recognized by the statewide press organization.
