Colleagues,

 

The Associated Press  Media Editors has honored the photograph below as National Member Photo of the Month for December 2018

 

Thanks to James Gregg at the Austin American Statesman for judging. 

 

Here is what the judge had to say about the winning image:

 

“This in my opinion, is the strongest of the group. Each expression gives a different layer of urgency to the scene, ultimately landing with the grief and contemplation of the father who has lost his son.  The reporting is strong, connecting to an urgent, larger story that has been humanized to the level of everyday people in a poignant way.  Giving a face to the impact of governmental policy and giving the viewer intimate access to these scene makes the news real to me in a way I otherwise would not feel as significantly.”

 

Below is the link to all images entered for December and the winner is slide #21.
