Tribune-Review photographer Brian F. Henry won an Award of Excellence at the Pictures of the Year International competition for his short film on the 12th anniversary of the Flight 93 tragedy near Shanksville.
Henry's film “Never Forget,” won the award in the multimedia division of the competition, held by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism.
Since 2001, the families of Flight 93 have mourned under the camera's eye at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Somerset County. Henry's film captures the emotional impact of the memorial on visitors against the backdrop of the 12th anniversary of the downing of Flight 93, the fourth plane hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001.
“We've all been going up there for more than a decade, but Brian went up and told the story we've seen in a very unique way,” said Barry Reeger, chief photographer.
POYi began as a photographic contest in spring 1944 in Columbia, Mo., when the Missouri School of Journalism sponsored its “First Annual Fifty-Print Exhibition” contest.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
