DENVER, March 13, 2007 — The National Press Photographers Association has honored KWGN News2 as one of the best in the nation.
News2 finished as one of four finalists in the prestigious 2007 NPPA “Station of the Year” competition.
News2 photojournalist Everett McEwan won first place in the NPPA competition for national spot news for his story on the rescue of a dog trapped in storm drain.
McEwan was also the first runner-up in the NPPA “Photographer of the Year” competition.
News2’s showing of excellence in this highly coveted national competition underscores the commitment News2 has toward solid and creative storytelling through skilled photojournalism and localism. Denver continues to be one of the most competitive news photography markets in the country and to be honored with the NPPA’s recognition is a significant endorsement of the high standards of the photojournalistic commitment to the community made by News2.
