2021 GRANT WINNER
Abigail Dean graduated from Ohio University in 2021 with a photojournalism major and sports administration minor. While at OHIO she produced work for The Post and WOUB and spent four years working for the OHIO athletic department photographing promotional materials and athletic events for 15 DI sports.
Following graduation, she joins the Indianapolis Colts as the photographic services intern, where her job will extend well past the football field, and she will have the chance to uphold the Colts’ strong emphasis on community involvement. The Colts are leaving their mark on the surrounding community and its people, and Abigail feels her personal emphasis on empathy and inclusion aligns well with this team and its beliefs.
Having grown up a multi-sport athlete, Abigail aims to capture the raw emotion of athletes in every picture she takes and loves the opportunity photojournalism provides to share the world around her.
