Tuesday Tips ~ Keys of Winning Photojournalists

January 20, 2014~

Just saw a great article by Alex Garcia, of the Chicago Tribune, entitled:

Tuesday Tips: 10 Key Traits of Winning Photojournalists 

Had to share with my readers as so many points are spot on.  I realize it is from 2010, but some things are ageless.

I am going to list his top ten but you must read the full article for his explanations.

  1. A lone wolf orientation
  2. Single, or have a flexible family life
  3. An Immovable Faith in the Power of an Image
  4. Fearless
  5. Fast and Decisive
  6. Ability to Self-Edit
  7. Competitive, Very
  8. Clever
  9. Relentless
  10. Anointed

As an award winner in several photo contests I can attest most, if not all attributes, are required for an award winning entry.
