2016 Photojournalism Contest Season

Several of the projects Erin Brethauer and I did for the San Francisco Chronicle placed in Photographer of the Year International (POYi) and NPPA's Best of Photojournalism (BOP) contests. It's so important for newspapers to put resources and trust into long form projects, and we were lucky enough to have that at the Chronicle. We've both moved on to freelance careers since, but are honored that our work was recognized. Here is a list of the awards:
