Their Best of Show is a picture by Andrew McConnell taken for Panos pictures. I shared some of his work in this blog past November.
Lately in photojournalism it seems that (with the best of the intentions) the top international photojournalist awards go to images featuring death, pain, cruelty, blood, etc. It's great to see NPPA has chosen as its top image, one that shows more than one side of life, poverty but also hope, destruction but also creation.
Congratulations to Andrew McConnell and to Panos pictures for this prize.
