Voice of OC this year launched a partnership with photojournalism students at Chapman University to produce photographic work all over Orange County.
Students were able to fill critical coverage gaps for lots of events and news stories. The partnership, which this year saw dozens of student journalists earn their first published clips, aims to nurture skills and publish student work for their portfolios.
Students worked on photo essays and collaborated with Voice of OC reporters to create news photographs.
