PostSecret is a community art project Warren created in 2004 in which people mailed in their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Every Sunday, selected secrets were posted on the PostSecret website for everyone to see. The idea behind the project was that individuals could identify with strangers and find their own answers within the secrets of others.
The NKU Activities Programming Board is hosting a competition that will let students submit their own secrets, which can range from regrets and fears to betrayals, desires and confessions. Secrets will be posted anonymously to a special Facebook page, and NKU students can vote on the best secrets. The secret with the most “likes” will win a signed book.
Secrets can be submitted to APB President Tina Hoesl (email@example.com) or APB Director of Public Relations Channel Karr (firstname.lastname@example.org). Only they will ever know who submitted NKU secrets. The deadline to submit secrets is Nov. 9 at noon.
On Nov. 13, Warren will reveal inspiring and funny stories behind some of the secrets his project has uncovered. Warren will also discuss some special secrets that couldn’t be published and copies of the New York Times bestseller “PostsSecret: Confessions on Life, Death and God” will be available for purchase and signing.
Photojournalism came of age in the Civil War and was well-established by the 20th century. But until the 1930s, the logistics of getting a picture from the scene of a breaking news event to the newsroom remained tied to couriers. Then came the wire photo, which allowed for the transmission of images over telephone lines.
In today’s fast-paced news environment with instantaneous photo and video coverage from around the world, it’s easy to forget how far we’ve come and how fast. Learn more at a public lecture by Santiago Lyon, vice president and director of photography for the Associated Press, on Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. at Northern Kentucky University’s Griffin Hall George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitoirum.
Lyon’s lecture, titled “Photojournalism: Then and Now,” is part of NKU’s popular Six@Six Lecture Series.
The Associated Press is the world’s leading news service and Lyon oversees its daily global photo and video report and the hundreds of photographers who produce AP images. Under his direction, the AP won journalism’s highest honor, the Pulitzer Prize, in 2005 and again in 2007, in photography categories.
“This is the third year that AP has brought one of its news leaders to this series, and we are especially lucky to have Mr. Lyon,” said Mark Neikirk, executive director of the NKU Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. “Our attendees told us they would appreciate a photojournalism talk and no one is more qualified to give it than he is.”
Neikirk also noted that the Digitorium’s large screen, with its exceptional image capacity, makes it the ideal place to showcase the AP’s extraordinary photojournalism history. The audience will see some of the iconic images of the 20th and 21st centuries like never before.
Tickets to the Nov. 15 lecture are $6. High school and college students can attend free, but will need a ticket. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.sixatsix.nku.edu or by calling (859) 572-1448.
