Mother Jones won a handful of photo editing prizes in this year’s National Press Photographers’ Association Best Of Photojournalism competition. It’s a well-recognized, “By Photojournalists, For Photojournalists” contest, hosted each year by Ohio University.

As the BOP site says:

“The Best of Photojournalism Committee, made up of some of the most prominent and visionary photographers, editors, and educators in visual journalism, is responsible for the oversight and strategic planning of the annual contest. Over the last seven years the Best of Photojournalism Committee has guided the NPPA’s contest to become one of the largest and most prestigious photojournalism contests in the world.”

Mother Jones contributing photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier‘s piece on Janesville, Wisconsin in our September/October 2009 issue was a hit with the judges, winning a number of awards, including 1st place for Best Magazine News story and 1st place for best Story Opener.

The Mexico story from the July/August 2009 issue, shot by Sarah Wilson (opening spread) and Eros Hoagland (Tijuana photo essay) got an Honorable Mention for Best Magazine news story.

And, hey, our photo editor, Mark Murrmann got 3rd place for Magazine Picture editor of the year!

Congratulations to the whole art department: Creative Director Tim Luddy, Art Director Carolyn Perot and Photo Editor Mark Murrmann.
