Winners of the 2010 Pulitzer Prizes announced
The 94th annual Pulitzer Prizes in Journalism, Letters, Drama and Music, awarded on the recommendation of the Pulitzer Prize Board, have been announced by Columbia University.
The winners in the two photography categories are Mary Chind (Breaking News Photography) and Craig F. Walker (Feature Photo-graphy). Both receive $10,000 - next to all the fame connected to these prizes.
Mary Chind of "The Des Moines Register" was awarded for her photograph of the heart-stopping moment when a rescuer dangling in a makeshift harness tries to save a woman trapped in the foaming water beneath a dam.
Craig F. Walker of "The Denver Post" was awarded for his intimate portrait of a teenager who joins the Army at the height of insurgent violence in Iraq, poignantly searching for meaning and manhood.
Congratulations to the winners! You may want to find more about them and The Pullitzer Prizes at the homepage.
