Download PDF for this date

Yitzhak Shargil, senior night editor of “Yediot Achronot” and long-time Tel Aviv correspondent for the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, has been named a judge in a nationwide photographic competition. The competition is organized jointly by the government press office and the National Journalists’ Association in memory of Jonathan Adam Kaminer, infant son of press photographer Eliahu Kaminer. The child was killed in an air crash in the U.S. in 1972. His father has established a memorial fund in the U.S. which is sponsoring the competition. First prize is IL 2500.

The competition’s aims are: “to create a framework for the advancement and exhibition of the work of Israeli press photographers as a medium of expression of human relations, for the furtherance of better understanding between men.”
