2013 Pulitzer Prize winners for photography

The 2013 Pulitzer Prizes for photography were announced today at Columbia University in New York.

The Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography was awarded to Javier Manzano, a freelance photographer, for his extraordinary image, distributed by Agence France-Presse, of two Syrian rebel soldiers tensely guarding their position as beams of light stream through bullet holes in a nearby metal wall.

Also nominated as finalists in this category were: Liz O. Baylen of the Los Angeles Times for her intimate essay, shot in shadowy black and white, documenting the shattered lives of people entangled in prescription drug abuse.

Renée C. Byer of The Sacramento Bee was also nominated as a finalist for her heartwarming photographs of a grandfather raising three grandchildren after the violent death of his daughter and the loss of his wife to cancer.

The Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography was awarded to Rodrigo Abd, Manu Brabo, Narciso Contreras, Khalil Hamra and Muhammed Muheisen of the Associated Press for their compelling coverage of the civil war in Syria, producing memorable images under extreme hazard. Also nominated as finalists in this category were: The Denver Post Staff for its skillful coverage of the mass shooting at a theater in Aurora, Colo., capturing the scope of the tragedy in a poignant portfolio of pictures; and Tyler Hicks of The New York Times for his powerful pictures chronicling deadly destruction in Gaza following a retaliatory bombing by Israel.
