Oops, I meant to qualify that - for newspaper photographers. (World-wide).
World Press is the biggest for Magazine photographers. (Both contests cross
on this, but the emphasis is there).

POY is also the most prestigious contest a newspaper photographer can win.
Yes, bigger than the highly politicized Pulitzer, which has too much
influence from word herders. :-) Actually the main reason for that
difference is it's impossible to win POY with an accidental picture. Real
skill is required over a whole year's time.

But it's interesting (to get back on topic) to see how many Pulitzers were
won with Leicas. (Again, luck is a big influence here).
