CNN, WaPo Excel in WHNPA’s 2015 Eyes of History Contest

Spoiler: CNN and WaPo made out like bandits.

The winners of the White House News Photographers Association’s 2015 Eyes of History Contest were revealed this week, and it appears CNN and The Washington Post shined.

CNN employees grabbed a total of 19 awards in the Video Contest, while The Washington Post grabbed 31 in the Still Contest. Perhaps most notable of the recipients is the Post’s Michel du Cille. The Pulitzer prizing-winning photojournalist, who passed away in December, will receive five awards posthumously.

The winners will receive their awards on May 16th at the WHNPA Awards Gala at the Ritz Carlton.

Below is the list of both CNN and The Washington Post‘s award-winners. For the complete list, check out the WHNPA website.
