NPPA names Best of Photojournalism award winners

NPPA has announced the still photography winners of its Best of Photojournalism contest. The Virginian-Pilot’s Ross Taylor was named Photojournalist of the Year for large markets. Dave Weatherwax, chief photographer at The Herald in Jasper, Ind., won the award for papers with circulation under 100,000.
