Best Publication Award
Every year since 1944, the Missouri School of Journalism has recognized the best work in photojournalism through the Pictures of the Year International (POYi) contest. This year, National Geographic was honored in several categories, including best publication, in recognition of a body of work in 2014 that included the June issue featuring a "war dog" on the cover (above).
The print and digital versions of National Geographic were also recognized for reporting, world health, print news and issue story editing, print feature story editing, online feature story editing, and portfolio editing.
Publishing award-winning photography "takes great photography, and it takes a great team to pull it together, from photo editors to layout designers," says Sarah Leen, National Geographic's director of photography. "It's the team that really makes the work shine."
