Mississippi State University Department of Art Professor Marita Gootee received several recognitions in the International 19th  Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers.

Gootee received three honorable mentions in the Professional Alternative Processes' single image category for her series titled Last Contact. She was an award winner and recipient of two honorable mentions in the Professional Cellphone single image category.

Juror Barbara Davidson, a Guggenheim Fellow and three-time Pulitzer Prize award winner, selected Gootee’s photography.

“This is very exciting for me to receive the top award for my cell phone photographic work,” said Gootee. “I use my cell phone to capture life around me every day. It is my camera for street photography. When I see something interesting, I just have to record it.”

The Worldwide Photography Gala Awards and Fotonostrum, The Mediterranean House of Photography in Barcelona, Spain, is the sponsor and host for this year's Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers.
