A number of RIT alumni have been selected as winners or finalists for Pulitzer Prizes in photojournalism. We welcome Pulitzer Prize winners and finalists this week to discuss their work, including a series that examined the possible impact of a border wall in Arizona. They are in town for a series of events at RIT.

Our guests also discuss the future of journalism and future prospects for young photojournalists. In studio: 

  • David Wallace, 2018 Pulitzer Prize winner for Explanatory Reporting
  • Edmund Fountain, 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist for Local Reporting
  • William Snyder, four-time Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, and chair of the Photojournalism Program at RIT
