Photo from CUSD graduation wins second place in OC Press Club contest

A photo taken during a Capistrano Unified School District graduation was honored during this year’s Orange County Press Club contest.

The Excellence in Journalism annual contest awards are normally celebrated with a gala dinner to honor the best designers, writers, photographers, and multimedia creators in Orange County journalism. This year, due to the pandemic, the winners were announced during a Facebook livestream on July 30, 2020.

This year for the first time, CUSD Insider was among the entrants — and the winners.

Steven Georgas was awarded second place in the Photography Best Feature Photo category with this image (above) of the Serra High School Class of 2019 commencement ceremony.

The contest entries were judged by the Florida Press Club, the Idaho Press Club, the Milwaukee Press Club, the New Orleans Press Club, the Press Club of Cleveland, the Press Club of Western Pennsylvania, the San Francisco Press Club and the Syracuse Press Club.
