As the hardreading staff noted the other day, the 2014 Boston Press Photographers Awards have been awarded and, not surprisingly, the Boston Herald was quick to Walt Whitman its tally of four first place prizes.
Crosstown, the Boston Globe has been less energetic in promoting its ten major awards, not to mention its four-plus stellar shooters.
So the hardreading staff will do what the stately local broadsheet has failed to: deliver the good news about their shutterbug stars.
Jessica Rinaldi won four awards on her own: Photographer of the year, Best in Show, News Feature Story, and Portfolio. Representative sample:
Barry Chin won two: Sports Feature and Sports Portfolio.
John Tlumacki won two: Feature Picture Story and Video Multimedia.
Pat Greenhouse won for General News.
And the Globe shooters also won Team Entry.
Plus, both local dailies scored numerous seconds, thirds, and honorable mentions.
Congrats to all!
