Three Black Hills State University photography students received awards in the South Dakota Academy of Family Physicians (SDAFP) photography contest.
In conjunction with SDAFP, Shutterbuzz – the BHSU photography club – organized the contest. The attendees of this year’s SDAFP conference chose the contest winners.
There was no specific theme for the contest, and any BHSU student was able to submit photographs.
The following BHSU students earned awards:
- $150 - Jon Deuter, graphic design major, Black Hawk
- Deuter’s winning image will published on the cover of the South Dakota Academy of Family physicians brochure.
- $100 - Zachary Meier, photography major, Scottsbluff, Neb.
- $50 - Taylee Hudson, photography major, Sturgis
Deuter said BHSU has helped him to recognize photography as an art form.
After graduation, Deuter hopes to expand his work and start his own photography business.
