Four Tribune-Review staffers won five national Clarion Awards from the Association for Women in Communications.

Photojournalist Andrew Russell took first place in two photo categories: best sports photo for a harness racer in action at The Meadows racetrack in Washington County, which accompanied an investigative story “Millions at Stake”; and best feature photo for his picture of a former Ugandan woman, Hanifa Nakiryowa, now living in the United States, as she lifted a scarf at Heinz Hall in Downtown Pittsburgh to reveal to an audience disfiguring scars she suffered after acid was thrown on her in 2011 in Uganda.

The latter photo previously won other awards, including the National Press Club's News Photo Award for 2015.

Photojournalist Stephanie Strasburg won first place in the major news event photo category for “Mother Loses Son,” taken as family members comforted a woman who lost a son to gun violence. The same photo previously won other awards, including first place in the National Headliner Awards' Spot News Photography category.

Photojournalist Justin Merriman took first place in the hard news photo series or essay category for a compilation of photos that accompanied the award-winning investigative series “American Coyotes” that revealed Americans represent the majority of human traffickers or “coyotes” who help smuggle undocumented immigrants across the Mexican border into the United States.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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 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.
