PICTURES OF THE YEAR INTERNATIONAL 2015 AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

I’m honored to receive a POYI 2015 Award of Excellence. My set of photos are from a helicopter crash that I was involved in while covering the delivery of aid and rescue of Yazidis in the Mountains of Sinjar Province, Iraq, in August last year while on assignment for The New York Times. My thoughts are with the family of the pilot who died in the crash, the thousands of displaced Yazidi and my colleague Alissa Johannsen-Rubin who was injured.

 A big congratulations to Daniel Berehulak for his well deserved Photographer of the Year Award
