    Mul5media News of the Week

    Na5onal Press Photographers Associa5on gave onlyone video award this year, an honorable men5on.

    Blogger asked: Why didnt you award first throughthird in news video?

    The Response: theresa: @Colin this was a realstruggle for us. Many were full of technical errors and

    ignored the basic principles of photojournalism. Wesaw lots of evidence of urgency, however we reallycouldnt award anything that had technical orfundamental errors.
