Vicarious Learning Vicarious learning is a type of learning derived from indirect sources such as observation, rather than direct instruction. The word “vicar” comes from the Latin “I see,” which means “to transport.” In Spanish, it has a symbolic meaning: with vicarious learning, information or learning is transferred from one person to another through observation.”

Bob Lynn Grant – Open to students and professionals A $4,000 grant will be offered for ten years beginning in 2020. “Our profession has a long history of helping to make a difference,” said Bob Lynn. “Some images were taken in dramatic situations — Eddie Adams, street execution; Nick Ut, naked child running from Vietnam War; Charles Moore, Civil Rights protest, dog attack, Birmingham.” “But other made a difference in more obscure settings — Dorthea Lange, Migrant Mother, California; Eugene Smith, toxic shell fi sh, Minamata, Japan; Donna Ferato, domestic violence in America.”

Passion ✤ “From indifference, strong images cannot be made.” National Geographic Photographer Bill Allard . ✤ “As far as common mistakes go, many student photographers are told that they need to have breaking news, sports, and features to round out their portfolio. I do not necessarily agree with this advice, and I think it leads to cookie-cutter portfolio editing - I see right through that. I like to see work that re fl ects what the student is passionate about and wants to pursue in their career.” Portfolio judge.

Passion ✤ “They should edit so we see their eye and not just to try to put check marks next to a variety of categories such as sports, spot news, disabled person of the moment, etc.” Portfolio judge.
