The Larsh Bristol Photojournalism Fellowship

The Larsh Bristol Photojournalism Fellowship provides a stipend for University of Wyoming students to showcase strong visual storytelling. Having supported young Wyoming photojournalists for more than a decade, the fellowship is still going strong.

Larsh Bristol was born and raised in Waukon, Iowa, and received his journalism degree from UW in 1974. He worked at a number of Wyoming newspapers after graduation as a daily newspaper photojournalist. Bristol also opened a photography studio and gallery in Sheridan, before finally settling in his home area of Northeast Iowa. He was an award-winning photographer for more than 20 years, specializing in nature, agriculture and commercial fishing on the Upper Mississippi River. He was noted for his photographic portrayals of human emotion, some of which are on display on the fourth floor of Ross Hall. After a long and successful career, Bristol died in an accident in 2006.

The Larsh Bristol Photojournalism Fellowship was started in 2008 to commemorate the man's life, work and vision. The fellowship awards a $5,500 stipend to a UW graduate or undergraduate student pursuing an interesting photojournalism project.

For more information about the Larsh Bristol Photojournalism Fellowship or about the display, email UW Department of Communication and Journalism Chair Cindy Price Schultz.
