As described by wikipedia, Photo journalism is a particular form of journalism (the collecting, editing, and presenting of news material for publication or broadcast) that creates images in order to tell a news story. It is now usually understood to refer only to still images, but in some cases the term also refers to video used in broadcast journalism. Photojournalism is distinguished from other close branches of photography (e.g., documentary photography, social documentary photography, street photography or celebrity photography) by complying with a rigid ethical framework which demands that the work is both honest and impartial whilst telling the story in strictly journalistic terms. Photojournalists create pictures that contribute to the news media.

Thank you to PictureWall and to professional photographer Taylor Davidson for his collaboration in selecting the following winners:

Finalist

photo contest

"The beauty of this photo is that the entire frame tells a story. In the foreground, we see the obvious story of the soldier and the men attending to him, and in the background, the context of the helicopters adds to the story of the image. This photo is a jumping off point for my mind, for there are so many stories in this image." - Taylor

Runner Up

photography competition

"This is a great capture of a cowboy; with the focus just on the cowboy (and caught with perfect timing, all 4 of the horse's feet off the ground, and the cowboy right as his head strikes the ground), the timing invites one think about what happened just before and just after. While the framing is a key component to this image, it's the timing that's so critical and so powerful." - Taylor
