NEW YORK (AP) _ Jean-Marc Boujou's photographs from Rwanda and Mark Humphrey's picture of a rescue worker and his search dog at the Oklahoma City bomb site won top awards in the Associated Press Managing Editors annual AP staff photography contest.
Boujou, based in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, was one of the first photographers to go to Rwanda and he covered every phase of the conflict, including the mass genocide, civil war, refugee flight and cholera outbreak.
Humphrey, from Nashville, Tenn., was one of a number of AP photographers sent to Oklahoma City after the April 19 bombing of the federal building which left 168 people dead and more than 500 injured.
The contest, judged Sunday by the executive committee of the APME, is open to AP staff photographers throughout the world.
Runners-up in the news category were David Longstreath of Oklahoma City, for his photographs from the Oklahoma City bombing, and Jacqueline Arzt of London, for photographs from Rwanda.
Runners-up in the feature category were Marty Lederhandler of the New York City bureau, for a photo of Santas coming to the rescue of an injured bicyclist and Lois Bernstein of Los Angles, for a photograph of a victim of the Kobe Japan earthquake.
