The National Press Photographer Association (NPPA) has posted the 2006 Best of Photojournalism Winners. As with most news related image exhibitions, there are some very graphic images that are not appropriate for younger viewers. The very first image in the first category (PhotoJournalist of the Year) is an amazing shot of a helicopter crashing in Afghanistan.
Todd Heisler of the Rocky Mountain Times has a heartfelt look at the return of a Marine from Iraq, and of the dozen featured images, one image in particular made me go, “Wow”. Interestingly, that same photo I later saw in a different category, as the first place winner in the General News category.
Give yourself time to view all the categories. There are excellent images in all of them. I’ve added a link to the winners page on my Photography page.
