Times photog earns honors

North­east Times staff pho­to­graph­er Jenny Swi­goda placed first in the Na­tion­al Press Pho­to­graph­ers As­so­ci­ation’s Au­gust Mul­ti­me­dia Con­test for her au­dio slideshow that ac­com­pan­ied an in-depth story about the Phil­adelphia Vet­er­ans Com­fort House and the vet­er­ans who rely on its ser­vices.

Jenny’s story and photo es­say, called The War With­in, was pub­lished in the Times in Ju­ly. Her self-pro­duced au­dio slideshow ap­peared on the Times Web site.

NPPA, with headquar­ters in Durham, N.C., spon­sors the na­tion­al con­test to re­cog­nize mul­ti­me­dia pro­jects de­veloped for Web sites.

An­oth­er pro­ject that Jenny un­der­took, a story and photo es­say about young moth­ers serving jail time in the River­side Cor­rec­tion­al Fa­cil­ity in North­east Phil­adelphia, earned her hon­or­able men­tion earli­er this year in an an­nu­al me­dia con­test sponsored by the Pennsylvania News­pa­per As­so­ci­ation. The story Moms In­ter­rup­ted, a win­ner in the con­test’s in­vest­ig­at­ive re­port­ing cat­egory, was pub­lished in the Times last Decem­ber.

Jenny has been with the Times since Janu­ary 2007. ••
