The FADER has never made it a secret that we aim to make our magazine one of the most visually compelling in the business. We reach out to some of the world's finest photographers to help us make our stories stick indelibly in your brain, and last week, two of those photographers were awarded prizes in the 51st Annual World Press Photo Contest, one of the (if not the) most prestigious juried competitions in photojournalism. Ariana Lindquist, who shot our Chinese Rock story in Issue 44, won the 1st Prize for a single image in the Arts & Entertainment category with another of her Chinese subjects, while Carolyn Drake, whose photos will appear in Issue 52, won 2nd Prize in the Daily Life stories category for her series of residents in the Ukrainian mining town of Torez. Congrats to both of them. And to the judges of World Press Photo, subscriptions to The FADER can be purchased here.
