I-Connect007 Student Photo Contest ResultsMarch 19, 2018 | I-Connect007
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
I-Connect007 invited three local college students to participate in their photographic coverage of IPC APEX EXPO 2018. These photographers from The Art Institute of California–San Diego and San Diego City College roamed the show floor and captured a variety of photos that were submitted to the I-Connect007 Student Photo Contest.
After the event, the I-Connect007 team reviewed the students’ photos and selected the top submissions. The winner (and each participant) received prize money based on their best photo. It is our pleasure to announce the photo contest results and showcase their work in our various publications.
Congratulations to Stephen Howell from San Diego City College for his winning photograph! Stephen Howell is a part-time photographer and photojournalism student at San Diego City College. When he is not working behind the camera for clients, he enjoys offering his time and photographic expertise to events in and around the San Diego area.
I-Connect007 would also like to acknowledge the runners-up, Matthew Crabtree and Amelia Christie, and thank all three students for photographing the trade show and participating in I-Connect007’s media coverage of IPC APEX EXPO 2018.
“It was exciting to invite local student photographers to IPC APEX EXPO 2018 and introduce them to our industry. This partnership allowed I-Connect007 to showcase young, local talent and to supplement their education through experiential learning,” says Barry Matties, I-Connect007 publisher.
Meet the photographers and view their featured photos (including the winning photo!) in our exclusive IPC APEX EXPO 2018 event coverage magazine: Show & Tell.

IPC APEX EXPO is North America’s largest electronics interconnect industry trade show that attracts industry leaders from around the world to network and demonstrate new equipment and technology. This year, IPC APEX EXPO 2018 was held in the San Diego Convention Center from February 24 to March 1. The show was sold out, with 479 exhibitors and increased attendance of over 9,000 visitors (including exhibitor personnel).
On the cusp of another IPC APEX EXPO, we focus on how bare board fabricators can maximize their time and investment at the show. We visited with Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist, and Julia Gumminger, IPC professional development and events manager, as well as Udo Welzel and Stanton Rak, the chairs of the technical program committee, to discuss the technical depth and breadth that the 2024 show will bring to fabricators and professionals all along the supply chain.
Each quarter, IPC releases a list of standards that are new or have been updated. To view a complete list of newly published standards and standards revisions, translations, proposed standards for ballot, final drafts for industry review, working drafts, and project approvals, visit ipc.org/status.
IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues in our industry and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
Like any great tech industry event, IPC APEX EXPO pushes us out of our busy 24/7 manufacturing bubbles. It forces us to pay attention to things that are important but not always present in our day-to-day lives. But there is so much to see and do. This issue of PCB007 Magazine previews many of the important events taking place at the show this year and highlights some changes and opportunities. Let us help you map out your show plan. This issue is focused on the PCB fabricator’s show experience and how you can get the most from your valuable time and investment in attending the show. So, buckle up. We are counting down to IPC APEX EXPO 2024.
It’s been another busy week in the industry. We lost another old friend last week. The EIPC show happened, and Pete Starkey provided us with complete and compelling show coverage, from start to finish. Recently, we posed the question, “When is it time to introduce embedded components into your PCB design?” which was asked and answered by design aficionado Kris Moyers in the latest issue of Design007 Magazine. We are proud to be a part of the exciting Global Insights weekly newsletter, which Nolan Johnson and Brian Knier explored in their interview, and we rounded out the week with some big merger news. Here are my picks for the past week’s must-read news items.
