Anne Herbst is an Emmy, Murrow, and NPPA award winning journalist at KUSA in Denver, CO. Rather than refer to her as a photojournalist, MMJ, or one-woman-band, the station chooses to call her a Senior Multi-skilled Journalist. In other words, she’s a great all around storyteller. Anne has worked in Denver for more than a decade, and has a Masters Degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She also spent two years at the Denver Post, creating video content for their website. But before that, this Wisconsin native earned her undergraduate degree studying print journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
She has been instrumental in putting together the NPPA’s Women in Visual Journalism Conference, and is a mentor and teacher for many aspiring and veteran journalists.

2017 Pulitzer Prize winning photographer E. Jason Wambsgans is a staff photographer at the Chicago Tribune, where he has spent the last 15 years covering stories that have taken him from the vanishing rainforests of Madagascar to the war in Afghanistan, and the last 4 years intensively documenting the problem of Chicago’s gun violence. Wambsgans, a Detroit-area native, developed an early love of photography which he pursued through Central Michigan University, where he studied fine art and cinema. His first years as a photojournalist were spent at small newspapers in Michigan, then at the Gary, Ind. Post-Tribune, capturing images of breaking news and of everyday life in the communities he covered. Throughout a career of wide-ranging assignments, his editors have counted on his ability to inventively meet challenges, whether aesthetic, technical or conceptual, while gracefully conveying the human experience.
