Picture Perfect: NPR Honored With 9 WHNPA Awards

NPR came away with nine honors in this year's "Eyes of History" contest, held annually by The White House News Photographers Association. NPR's distinctions include four first place awards for John Poole and David Gilkey, who was named Photographer of the Year by the WHNPA in the 2011.

The work of Claire O'Neill, Coburn Dukehart, John Poole and David Gilkey demonstrates NPR's expansion and innovation in the digital space. They were all recognized individually for excellence in still photography, video and/or new media in a competition known as one of the country's most prestigious showcases in visual journalism.

All of these awards represent the hard work and collaboration of reporters, editors, designers and producers as well as staff at Colorado Public Radio who co-produced David Gilkey's 'LifeQuest' story.
