SUE MORROW has been an advocate for visual journalism as a picture editor, designer, art director and newsroom manager. She believes everyone has a story to tell, and that multimedia is the powerful medium to report those stories.

She has worked as a photo editor and manager at some of the best newspapers in the country: San Jose Mercury News, Tampa Bay Times, The Sacramento Bee, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Boston Globe. During her tenure at Assistant Managing Editor for photography at the Times, the photo staff was recognized with numerous awards for photography and editing in Pictures of the Year International, Best of Photojournalism, and Society of News Design, winning Picture Editing Team Portfolio in POYi.

She has taught at Ohio University, lectured at The Poynter Institute, Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar and many National Press Photographer related seminars and contests. Since 1994, she has been faculty and board member with The Kalish,, the established visual storytelling workshop and served as its director 2011-2013.

She has been a judge for POYi, BOP, SND, the White House News Photographers Association, and Hearst Journalism Awards Program.

Today as assistant multimedia director at The Sacramento Bee, she is helping with the move toward a digital future while continuing daily photo editing duties. She edited and designed The Bee's 2007 Pulitzer Prize feature photography winning entry “A Mother’s Journey,” which documented the challenges of a single mom, her dying young son and the challenges of health care. She edited The Bee’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize finalist in feature photography “A Grandfather’s Sorrow and Love,” about a man's efforts to raise his three young grandchildren after his daughter's murder.

As the Knight Fellow at Ohio University 2010-11, she earned a master’s degree from the School of Visual Communication in Athens. During that time she produced the short documentary “Born to Die” about horse rescue at Last Chance Corral, which made its debut at the Athens International Film & Video Festival in April 2013. Work on that project continues.
