poyiPictures of the Year International is a competition that began in 1944 at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Mo. Each year since, the best examples of photography from around the world are submitted for judging by a select panel of editors, scholars and fellow photographers. The original intent was to “to pay tribute to those press photographers and newspapers which, despite tremendous war-time difficulties, are doing a splendid job; to provide an opportunity for photographers of the nation to meet in open competition; and to compile and preserve…a collection of the best in current, home-front press pictures,” according to the university. The collection of results that is posted at the end of February is one of the finest examples of photojournalism in the world. Some of the pictures that win the contest have not graced the front pages of papers and website home pages, but others are well known. Below is a sample of the 2014 winners. For the complete list of winners, please visit http://www.poyi.org
