Despite the vast amount of "multimedia" material floating around the world, the persuasive and emotive visual power of so-called "static" photographs remains highly compelling. The annual Best of Photojournalism awards pay tribute to a wide range of media, and this website offers the best in still photography from the year 2005. Announced throughout the month of March, visitors can view the images at their leisure in a myriad of categories, including "Sports Portfolio of the Year", "International News Picture Story", and "Portrait and Personality". Scattered throughout the site are photos of federal agents on duty on the United States-Mexico border, a Kashmiri woman outside of an immunization clinic, and a wrestler in the throes of training to qualify for the Palestinian Olympic team.
