As an interesting side note – some people have complained because the winner and the chairman of the judges are both founding members of the VII image library. However World Press Photo organisation seem to be sticking to their decision (See HERE).

Pulitzer Prize 2012

Well …. seems I’ve been passed over again 😉

Just a quick post to mention that Pulitzer Prize 2012 winners have been announced.

The number of photography awards can vary years to year, this year there are two:

 Feature Photography – Craig F. Walker of The Denver Post

Breaking News Photography – Massoud Hossaini of Agence France-Presse

Here’s the winner for Breaking News Photography (see above link for more details):

Ashural Bombing - by Massoud Hossaini of AFP

For those interested in the Photography of Pulitzer – there is a book called “Moments – The Pulitzer Prize Winning Photographs” however it’s now out of print so hard to get hold of. Also as years go buy it’s been updated so there are numerous versions of the book too. I have one, think the 2002 version – I’ve yet to go through it in detail. I THINK there might be a version from 2007.
