Two Tribune-Review photographers won awards in the international Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar competition.

Stephanie Strasburg won first place in the pictorial category for a November 2012 photo showing people watching fireworks from inside their rooms at the Wyndham Hotel, Downtown. In this category, judges consider the aesthetic qualities of photos, with emphasis on composition.

Justin Merriman's photo story “Egypt: An Ongoing Revolution” took third place in the Chris Hondros Memorial International News category. The category is in memory of a Getty Images staff photographer who died in April 2011 while covering conflict in Libya.

Other winners in the competition included photographers from the Associated Press, Reuters, Getty Images, Agence France-Presse and The Washington Post. The Trib was the only newspaper to win more than one award.

The annual seminar, begun in 1973, includes an educational conference as well as the photography contest, which is open to any photographer from any country.

Strasburg, a graduate of Goddard College in Vermont, joined the Trib full time in 2012 after completing a summer internship. Merriman, a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, has been with Trib Total Media papers since 1999 and has been on assignment in Haiti, Cuba, Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt.
