2013 Pulitzer Prize Winners Announced, All Depict Syrian Civil War  

Written by DL Cade, Content shared via PetaPixel

2013 Pulitzer Prize Winners Announced, All Depict Syrian Civil War aleppo1

Columbia University has announced the winning photographs of both the Breaking News and Feature Photography Pulitzer prizes for 2013 — all of which depict the heartrending civil war in Syria. At first glance that may not seem like a big deal, but when you consider that the Breaking News prize wasn’t awarded to one, but five AP photographers jointly, the power of these photos begins to sink in.

At the top we have the winner of the Feature Photography Pulitzer, taken by freelance photographer Javier Manzano who we had the pleasure of interviewing in June of last year. The photo shows two rebel soldiers guarding their sniper’s nest in Aleppo, illuminated by light streaming through bullet holes.

Below we have one photo from each of the five Breaking News winners. All of these photos were taken in Syria, many in extremely hazardous situations:

Five Favorite Photos from President Obama's 2nd Inauguration

In honor of the extremely moving Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama which took place on Monday, I have chosen the five photos I felt were most emblematic of the wondrous occasion as a whole. Enjoy.
