Pulitzer Prize Winners Announced

Congratulations to Preston Gannaway of the Concord (N.H.) Monitor for winning the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography. Her story, Remember Me, is an intimate look at how one family deals with a parents’ terminal illness. The connection Preston made with Carolynne St. Pierre and her family in the almost two years she documented their lives is amazing.

Watch the story.

Adrees Latif of Reuters was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Photography, for his photograph of a Japanese videographer killed during a street demonstration in Myanmar.

Congratulations also to the other finalists in these categories: David Guttenfelder (AP) and Mona Reeder (Dallas Morning News) for Feature Photography, and Mahmud Hams (Agence France-Presse) and the Los Angeles Times Staff for Breaking News Photography.

Also worth mentioning, the Washington Post won six awards, including the Public Service Prize, for a story on wounded veterans at Walter Reed Hospital, which photographer Michael du Cille worked on with two reporters.
