Nadav Kander’s formal portrait (right) of Donald Trump for TIME magazine’s “Person of the Year” cover has won the first place prize in the Portrait category.

New York Times staff photographer Damon Winter has taken first place awards in two categories: Campaign 2016 Picture Story, for a portfolio of images of Trump campaign rallies;  and US Presidential 2016, for a single image of a young Trump supporter chanting “Lock her up” at a Trump rally.

In other categories, Søren Bidstrup of the Berlingske Nyheder (Berlingske News, Denmark) won first place in the Feature category. His winning photograph (below) shows a Trump supporter sitting in a coffee shop in War, West Virginia under portraits of John F. Kennedy and George Washington.
