Palumbo was part of the Style and Digital Video team that won a Silver Lovie Award in 2022 for a documentary about the artist and curators who escaped war in Ukraine to bring their work to the Venice Biennale. That same year, with CNN’s As Equals team, she won a collective Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists; the project included her reporting on the proliferation of skin-lightening products being sold across social media platforms.

Prior to joining CNN Style, Palumbo was a Senior Editor of Artsy, where she led the Visual Culture vertical, covering photography, design, architecture, and where art intersects with pop culture and tech. In 2018, the feature “Year in Visual Culture” was nominated for a Webby award. One of her essays for Artsy was also published by David Zwirner Press in the art book “Diane Arbus: Documents.” Palumbo also worked for Photo District News (PDN) as the lead editor of its publications for aspiring photographers, PDNedu and Emerging Photographer.
