Congratulations to ArtCenter 8th term student Urim Ray Hong. Hong received the 2019 Grand Prize for PDN’s Annual Student Photo Contest in the Documentary / Photojournalism category for his series “City Soleil: Eager to learn”. His series captures the children in City Soleil, Haiti, who are thriving and learning despite the town’s impoverished conditions. Hong will receive a Nikon DSLR camera, $150 to B&H Photo and a portfolio review.
