Hertzberg Wins Costa Courtroom Award For The Fourth Time

The NPPA is reporting that Racine Journal Times photojournalist Mark Hertzberg has won the Joseph Costa Award for Courtroom Photography for an unprecedented fourth time since 1987.

In the 20 years that Ball State University has given the award, Hertzberg is the first photographer to have won the prize four times (in 1987, 2001, 2006, and this year). Hertzberg is the director of photography for The Journal Times in Racine, WI.

The annual award, which is given by the Journalism Department of Ball State University, honors the ideals of Joseph Costa, a founder of the National Press Photographers Association and former lecturer in the Department of Journalism, who led a crusade to give photojournalists an equal footing with reporters in the nation’s courtrooms.
