18 April 2016

Among the Pulitzer Prizes announced today were two photography honors in the categories of Breaking News and Feature Photography, each of which carry awards of $10,000.


In the Breaking News Photography category, the prize was split between two winners:

Mauricio Lima, Sergey Ponomarev, Tyler Hicks and Daniel Etter of The New York Times were cited "for photographs that captured the resolve of refugees, the perils of their journeys and the struggle of host countries to take them in."

The photography staff of Thomson Reuters was cited for "gripping photographs, each with its own voice, that follow migrant refugees hundreds of miles across uncertain boundaries to unknown destinations."

Other finalists included Andrew Burton, Chip Somodevilla, Patrick Smith and Drew Angerer of Getty Images for "intimate photographs that placed viewers in the streets of Baltimore during protests over the death of Freddie Gray."


The prize for Feature Photography went to Jessica Rinaldi of The Boston Globe for "the raw and revealing photographic story of a boy who strives to find his footing after abuse by those he trusted."

Other finalists included the photography staff of The Post and Courier, Charleston, S.C. for "photographs that tell from many angles the story of a racially motivated church shooting and its sorrowful but sometimes also heartening aftermath."
