Kerr Wins National Press Photographers Association Award

Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology instructor Kelly Kerr nabs the National Press Photographers Association contest for feature photography award.
Kerr, who joined the OSU Tech faculty in January, won for photos titled, “Playing Dress Up,” which gave readers of the daily paper a peak at the bands that would perform at the newspaper’s annual Spot Music Awards show.
Kerr took an idea from VH1’s Fashion Rocks magazine, which dressed performers in costume, a step further and created scenes around the musicians in costume.
With help from co-workers, the bands and friends throughout Tulsa, Kerr arranged for makeup artists, sets and extra characters for the scenes.
