After two weeks of semi-suspense, the Missouri School of Journalism has announced the winners of the Pictures of the Year International (POYi) competition.

Ms. Davidson, a staff photographer at The Times, won the community awareness award, the issue reporting picture story award (newspaper division) and the feature picture story award (newspaper division) for her series documenting the devastating aftermath of gang violence in the lives of those who have been caught in the crossfire.
