ROCHESTER, NY (February 28, 2013) - John Bailey, ASC, a renowned cinematographer known for his artistic contributions to cinema, will spearhead a panel of judges for the 2013 Kodak student scholarship program.

Accredited film schools around the world may nominate up to two students for consideration for the KODAK Student Scholarship Award, and one cinematography student for the KODAK Student Cinematography Scholarship Award.
