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.
