Pictures of the Year: Finding Stories Everywhere – Lens

Pictures of the Year International wrapped up judging for the 71st annual competition this week. Five different panels of judges selected winners in individual picture and Photographer of the Year categories over three weeks of judging at the University of Missouri. There’s some stunning work that exemplifies the best of photojournalism over the past year.

Today’s New York Times Lens blog has a rundown of the winners along with some inspiring quotes. Newspaper Photographer of the Year Barbara Davidson: “I’m a firm believer that there are good stories to be told anywhere, and foreign is relative to where you are.” Davidson also gives credit to the editing side of photojournalism: “Smart editing is usually what makes a piece stand out.”
