The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) announced that it has awarded a 2016 Circle of Excellence Platinum Award to BYU University Photography Manager Jaren Wilkey for his portfolio of photographs. Wilkey’s images competed against the top entries from each of CASE’s eight districts to capture the top award for photography in education.
In the award announcement, the CASE judges wrote: “Jaren Wilkey’s portfolio showed great diversity, from action/event documentation to staged portraiture. His images were beautifully crafted, with excellent lighting, compositions and interesting perspectives. The portfolio was seemingly timeless, without reliance on heavy editing or post-processing. The presentation was very professionally done, which made reviewing the images and understanding their context easy. The clear explanations included on the pages added depth and context to the images. Wilkey’s overall presentation showed attention to detail and pride in his art.”
