The winning blogs, selected from more than 300 sites, include sites that report on the work of professional photographers, including the New York Times Lens Blog, Time Magazine’s Lightbox, and PDN Pulse, which judges cited for its “on point stories” by “seasoned editors” (“seasoned” makes us feel slightly weather-beaten, but we’ll take the compliment). Also honored were large-format photography blogs like The Atlantic’s In Focus and PDN Photo of the Day, which was praised for its “global reach and sky-standards”; online magazines showcasing photo essays, including Burn, acurator.com, and American Suburb X; and blogs that bring a critical eye to recent photography exhibitions and photo essays, BagNewsNotes and Conscientious.

Congratulations to all the winners. We’re delighted to be in the company of so many blogs we admire and enjoy regularly.
