Getty Images: 90+ Awards in 2010

Posted on 6/21/2010 by Julia Dudnik Stern | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Photographers and editors of Getty Images have earned more than 90 industry awards in this year’s ceremonies that covered images and multimedia productions. The honors include top-level placement at competitions by the National Press Photographers Association, the Overseas Press Club of America and World Press Photo.

Reportage by Getty Images photographer Eugene Richards was awarded first place at the World Press Photo Awards 2010 in the Contemporary Issues/Stories category for a series of photographic essays, “War is Personal.” Fellow Reportage photographer Alvaro Ybarra Zavala won the prestigious Overseas Press Club of America’s Olivier Rebbot Award for documenting political violence in Venezuela.

Chip Somodevilla’s work featured prominently at this year’s White House News Photographers Association’s awards. Somodevilla took home the title of Photographer of the Year, three categories’ first-place awards for his coverage of the healthcare battle in Washington and two more second-place awards.

Nine Getty editorial and Reportage photographers—and three past Getty editorial grant winners—were recognized at the 67th Annual Pictures of the Year International Competition. Getty shooters also earned 14 awards and honors at NPPA’s annual The Best of Photojournalism contest, where Quinn Rooney, Al Bello and Cameron Spencer took the top three prizes in the Sports Photojournalist of the Year category.

Getty sports photographers did similarly well in Australia, at the 2010 Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards: Cameron Spencer took the title of Sports Photographer of the Year, and Ryan Pierse won the 2010 Press Photography Award.

Award-winning work is featured at Getty’s dedicated awards Web site and in the company’s podcast series.
