Birmingham News photographer Tamika Moore just got back from the 65th annual Pictures of the Year International (POYi) awards where she accepted a first place award for her photography column In FocusClick here to see examples of her work.

Moore is seen here photographing this week’s Earth Day parade in downtown Birmingham. POYi began as a photographic contest in the spring of 1944 in Columbia, Missouri, when the Missouri School of Journalism sponsored its “First Annual Fifty-Print Exhibition” contest. Its stated purpose was, “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.”

The contest has tens of thousands of entries each year and has expanded to dozens of categories, including magazine photography.

It looks like it’s part of a larger plan to have all NBC affiliates on the service.

They are not the first service online – that honor goes to The Birmingham News, who we believe has been using the service since last November.

Don’t forget you can follow us too – @bhamterminal.
