Associated Press Photographers Lead Winners' Parade At The 73rd Overseas Press Club Awards

NEW YORK, April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In a year when most noteworthy international coverage originated from Libya, Egypt and Japan, Associated Press (AP) photographers captured three Overseas Press Club awards, including two by David Guttenfelder, to lead all news organizations at the 73rd Annual OPC Awards Dinner held today.

Since 1940, the OPC Awards have recognized the finest examples of international journalism.  Weekend anchor Lester Holt of NBC News and Alison Smale, the executive editor of The International Herald Tribune will present the awards at tonight's black-tie event in New York.

This year the AP raised its career OPC awards total to 40. Guttenfelder, the chief Asia photographer for AP, won the Feature Photography Award for his images of a closed society in North Korea and an Olivier Rebbot Award for Japan's closed-off nuclear zone, which appeared in National Geographic. AP's Pete Muller won the John Faber Award for documenting the fight against mass rape in Eastern Congo, marking the first time since 1968 that AP photographers collected three OPC awards in one year. 

Ted Turner, chairman of Turner Enterprises and CNN founder, will receive the President's Award for lifetime achievement. Joao Silva, the renowned photojournalist who was seriously wounded covering the war in Afghanistan, will light the Press Freedom Candle in honor of the 46 journalists killed in 2011. Sir Harold Evans, Reuters editor-at-large, will remember all fallen reporters with his own personal tribute.

Six other news organizations won two awards each, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, ABC News, WNET-TV, The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg Businessweek.    

C.J. Chivers of The New York Times won the prestigious Hal Boyle Award for best newspaper reporting from abroad for his series "War Reports from Libya and Afghanistan," which the judging committee explained why the Afghanistan war has become so difficult for the U.S. strategically.

The Robert Capa Gold Medal Award, which honors press photography requiring great enterprise and courage, went to Andre Liohn of the European Pressphoto Agency for his combat images of Misrata.
