Best of AP — Honorable Mention


All-formats team delivers outstanding coverage of Istanbul crash


Ayse Wieting, video news editor; Mehmet Guzel, video journalist; Robert Badendieck, freelance video journalist; Emrah Gurel, freelance photographer; and Lefteris Pitarakis, chief photographer, all based in Istanbul, joined by Burhan Ozbilici, photographer, and Suzan Fraser, reporter, both of Ankara, for quickly and methodically jumping from the story of fatal twin avalanches to another major breaking news story: the crash of a Turkish airliner in Istanbul. The all-formats team ensured AP stayed ahead of the competition from the initial urgent phase to the aftermath, including fast filing of text and photos, live video from the scene and powerful survivor interviews from the hospital.
