As part of its ongoing commitment to recognize and support the photojournalist community, PNY Technologies, Inc. cosponsored the White House News Photographers Association’s (WHNPA) annual gala awards dinner last month. The annual black-tie event recognizes the finest photojournalists for the best images of the President, political leaders and major news stories.
PNY presented Jay L. Clendenin of Aurora Photos with the Political Photo of the Year Award. His compelling image captured Senator Barack Obama ‘staring down the competition’, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. The two senators were seated near each other during the annual State of the Union address. To view Jay’s winning photo and the rest of this year’s award winning images, please visit www.whnpa.org/contest/eyes2008/stills/politicalphoto/01/1.shtml
“As one of our newest corporate sponsors and a leading manufacturer of high performance flash memory, PNY is equipping our members with the gear they need to help capture, create and store life’s greatest moments,” said Heidi Elswick, business director, WHNPA. “PNY’s support helps the association provide professional and educational outreach to its members through its scholarships, programming, an annual competition, and industry celebration at the annual Eyes of History Gala.”
