Samuel Chamberlain was an accomplished artist, teacher and author. He was gifted in lithography, etching, pencil drawing, drypoint, and photography; and he authored over 70 books, including his illustrated autobiography, Etched in Sunlight, published in 1968. In the early 1920s, after having studied architecture at MIT, he found his artistic home in the graphic arts, which brought him numerous prizes and awards, both here and in Europe. In the late 1930’s, he took up photography and published a series of books on early American architecture and furniture. The Samuel Chamberlain Memorial Award, established by Reporter Publishing Company and Forumgraphics, was given during the 1975 Festival of Arts and is now awarded annually as part of the Photography Exhibit.
The Photojournalism Award is awarded for a photograph with informative content and emotional impact including human interest,
documentary and/or spot news. It is meant to demonstrate the capture of a “moment in
time.” The journalistic value of the photograph as well as pictorial quality is
considered by the judges.
