LA Times Photojournalist Receives Frank McCulloch Award for Courage in Journalism

Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Barbara Davidson can add a new award to her trophy room. The LA Times staffer was just awarded the Frank McCulloch Award for Courage in Journalism by the University of Nevada, Reno’s Reynolds School of Journalism.

“[W]inning any award for work that is this important to our society is a wonderful honor,” says Davidson. “Awards like this draw more attention to the issue of gang violence in our country, and that was always my goal. Anytime the work is recognized or acknowledged, it brings more awareness of the work and the issue. And, the better we will all be for it.”

Davidson won the Pulitzer last year for her photo essay “Caught in the Crossfire” about life in South LA, Watts and Compton.
