LA Times, Washington Post Photographers Win Pulitzers for Photos

Barbara Davidson of the Los Angeles Times has been awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Feature Photography for her story on innocent victims of gang violence. Carol Guzy, Nikki Kahn and Ricky Carioti of the Washington Post were awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Photography for their images of the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. The Pulitzers were announced today at Columbia University in New York.

Both prizes come with a $10,000 award; the Washington Post photographers will share their $10,000 prize.

Finalists in both photo categories were also announced today. They include photographers with The New York Times, the Naples (Florida) Daily, Getty Images and the Los Angeles Times.

    This Pulitzer business is such a joke. The same major publications share the prizes every year following a strict club mentality, with the same favored photographers working exclusively at chasing a Pulitzer prize (can you say Guzy?), while the rest of the photographic service does the heavy lifting days in, days out, to fill the pages of their papers. It’s becoming more irelevant every year. This is the 21st century – wake up, and include the other sources of photographic information: agencies, collectives, independents, websites. You maybe salvage what’s left of the prestige once attached to the prize.
