Mark Edelson is Multimedia Director at The Palm Beach Post, where he works with photographers, designers, reporters and editors on the presentation of stories throughout the paper and online.
He joined The Post as a picture editor in 1993, and has been named Newspaper Picture Editor of the Year eight times. He's also been the lead picture editor or designer for the Post team that has earned numerous awards in the Best of Photojournalism, Pictures of the Year, Society for News Design and Best Use of Photography Contests.
Edelson has had the opportunity and good fortune to work closely with -- both learn from and guide -- nine regional photographers of the year. He's been a judge at numerous contests, including POY, BOP and SND, and regularly participates in workshops and seminars from which, he says, he derives as much knowledge and inspiration as any of the students. Prior to joining The Post, he was Director of Photography at The Sun-Sentinel in Ft. Lauderdale. From 1981 to 1988 he was at The Sun-Tattler in Hollywood, Fl, working first as a photographer, then photo editor, page designer and finally Graphics Director.
