Abstract

Literature confirms that most award-winning photojournalism contains violence, conflict, or suffering. This is a qualitative study of single-image first prize winners from Pictures of the Year International and World Press Photos from 2004-2014 to determine what themes were most common and how those themes relate to geographic location and the photographer's nationality.
