POYi welcomes you to the 60th competition!
As one of the world’s oldest, largest
and most highly respected photojournalism contests, we are proud
to continue our history of providing a venue for thoughtful and
educational discourse committed to the advancement of the profession.
The Pictures of the Year International competition is conducted
annually to recognize excellence in photojournalism by honoring
press photographers, editors and the institutions where they are
employed. Winning images from POYi have challenged photographers
across the globe to push themselves to see more critically. Publications
noted for their outstanding use of photographs have inspired rethinking
and redesign at other media outlets.
Individual awards in 45 categories will be presented for newspaper
and magazine photojournalism and for picture editing. Highest
honors go to the Newspaper Photographer of the Year, the Magazine
Photographer of the Year, the World Understanding Award and to
recipients of the Community Awareness Award, the Angus McDougall
Overall Excellence in Editing Award and the Best Use of Photography
in Books Award.
The contest is made possible thanks to continued support from
the Missouri School of Journalism. To enhance this support, POYi
and the Missouri School of Journalism have established a Pictures
of the Year International Endowment to ensure the contest continues
to keep pace with changes in the profession while meeting its
educational mission. POYi has supported the profession by providing
leadership in establishing a standard of excellence; now is your
chance to support POYi with your contribution.
We welcome your participation and look forward to achieving
a record of the best photojournalism of 2002.
