Sophomore named finalist in photo competition

By Maggie Bunzel

Mazelle Etessami ’14 is a finalist in the National Scholastic Press Association’s National Photo of the Year Competition for a photo taken last year. The photo is of Donhem Brown ’14 at the teaser for the 2011 Dance Production performance, and was submitted by Spectrum adviser Steve Chae.

 There were 1,047 entries in the contest. Entries were judged on technical quality, artistic value and journalistic content.

“I felt really accomplished and proud of myself,” said Etessami.

The winners will be announced on Nov. 19 at the NSPA convention in Minneapolis.
