COLORADO STUDENT MEDIA ASSOCIATION PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2019
I have been involved with Rock Canyon High School's Black & Gold Yearbook since I was a freshman. Earlier in 2019, I entered in a state-wide competetion for CSMA with 12 of my photographs, concerning journalism, from the 2018-2019 school year. I was named the CSMSA 2019 Photographer of the Year, winning $250 for myself and an additional $250 for my school's program.
Some thoughts from the judge, Mark Murray:
"[Maddie Provost's] portfolio captured beautiful moments in fantastic detail that showcased the eye of the photographer. The photos demonstrated interesting angles and striking compositions that invited the viewer to explore the content of the photos. Judicious use of black and white added to the starkness of some of the images."
