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.
