Philip Talleyrand, a 25-year-old supervision and management major at Kendall Campus, received a Gold Circle Award from The Columbia Scholastic Press Association, winning first place in the Photography Portfolio for Magazine Publications category.
He submitted his portfolio to Miambiance Magazine, the literary and arts magazine at Kendall Campus that critiques and publishes the art and literary works of Miami Dade College students. Miambiance submitted Talleyrand’s work to the CSPA to compete for a Gold Circle Award.
“It’s such an honor to receive this award,” Talleyrand said. “For me, the greatest weapon you can have in your hands is your camera.”
His portfolio centered around the theme of transportation, focusing on photographing classic trains, now that they are not used readily in commercial transportation.
The Columbia Scholastic Press Association grants the Gold Circle Award to student journalists who have superior work in either print or media. The program is done by Columbia University in New York City.
