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). - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
