Five Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photographers were honored Friday for photos they took last year.

The News Photographers Association of Greater Pittsburgh recognized winners in its 2000 Year in Pictures contest at a dinner at the Pittsburgh Hilton and Towers, Downtown.

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review photography chief James M. Kubus received three awards: first place and honorable mention for sports features, and second place in illustration.

Philip Pavely received first-place awards for spot news and for sports picture story, third place in the pictorial category, and an honorable mention in sports feature.

Chaz Palla placed second in sports portfolio and second in sports feature.

Steve Adams placed third in the photographer of the year category. He received two honorable mentions in the feature photograph category, honorable mention for general news, and honorable mention for feature picture story.

Christopher Horner received two awards: second place in news picture story and honorable mention in the spot news category.

Winners were named in 13 categories, said Bill Wade, president of the 60-year-old association.

The winning photos were selected by three judges from Ohio: Lisa Finger, a picture editor at The Columbus Dispatch; Dale Omori, a staff photographer at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland; and Al Fuchs, a commercial photographer from Cleveland.

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.
