Mother Jones won a handful of photo editing prizes in this year’s National Press Photographers’ Association Best Of Photojournalism competition. It’s a well-recognized, “By Photojournalists, For Photojournalists” contest, hosted each year by Ohio University.

As the BOP site says:

“The Best of Photojournalism Committee, made up of some of the most prominent and visionary photographers, editors, and educators in visual journalism, is responsible for the oversight and strategic planning of the annual contest. Over the last seven years the Best of Photojournalism Committee has guided the NPPA’s contest to become one of the largest and most prestigious photojournalism contests in the world.”

Mother Jones contributing photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier‘s piece on Janesville, Wisconsin in our September/October 2009 issue was a hit with the judges, winning a number of awards, including 1st place for Best Magazine News story and 1st place for best Story Opener.

The Mexico story from the July/August 2009 issue, shot by Sarah Wilson (opening spread) and Eros Hoagland (Tijuana photo essay) got an Honorable Mention for Best Magazine news story.

And, hey, our photo editor, Mark Murrmann got 3rd place for Magazine Picture editor of the year!

Congratulations to the whole art department: Creative Director Tim Luddy, Art Director Carolyn Perot and Photo Editor Mark Murrmann.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
