The 2018 All About Photo Award Winners | LENSCRATCH

It was a privilege and an honor to be one of the jurors for this new edition of All About Photo Awards 2018. First of all, I can’t thank enough Liu Bolin, Eli Klein, Crista Dix, Marco Gualizzini, Elisabeth Mouchy, Ann Jastrab and Michael Itkoff for their patience and hard work. We received more than 4,200 images from around the world and it was a long and difficult task to select the images that would make it to the second round. After spending a lot of time watching the images over and over again we selected around 900 images from 362 photographers. The overall quality was amazing and many more photographers could have been featured in our winners’ gallery but in the end I hope you like the ones we have selected. – Sandrine Hermand Grisel

Is Ryan Kelly’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Photograph an American ‘Guernica’?

At first glance, the photograph is nearly impossible to make sense of visually or politically. Cars are not supposed to drive into pedestrians; fellow citizens are not supposed to kill each other over political differences. And there’s so much in the frame of the image – so many figures and forms crowded together, most only partially visible – that you can’t take it in all at once.

What the 2018 Pulitzers tell us about the state of American journalism | Poynter

The 14 Pulitzer prizes for American journalism can be a form of tea leaves for the state of the industry. The winners and finalists offer a highly imperfect view of who’s doing notable work.

The 2018 Pulitzer Prize Winners

As expected, the New York Times and The New Yorker dominated much of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize fanfare, and while it is necessary to honor the award-winning reporting undertaken by Jodie Kantor, Meghan Twohey, and Ronan Farrow, some of the most-talked about features from this past year were also celebrated. Including, Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, whose in-depth reporting on Dylann Roof for GQ won for feature writing (Ghansah also won a National Magazine Award for this story). And the staff of the Cincinnati Enquirer, which provided a brutal examination of the effects of heroin during a week-long period.
