The University of Missouri School of Journalism has been handing out annual Medals for Distinguished Service in Journalism since 1930. Next Tuesday, it will be time to celebrate the 2016 honorees.
It’s an eclectic mix. On the organization side, there is Politico, the TV series POV and the AAF Mosaic Center for Multiculturalism. And in terms of individuals, this year’s recipients are THR and Billboard Media Group co-president Janice Min, St. Louis Post-Dispatch Metro columnist Tony Messenger and a very distinguished photographer, Rich Clarkson.
From the school’s announcement:
Clarkson has been named by American Photo magazine as one of the 50 most influential individuals in American photography.
