Portfolios of Daniel’s work for Greenpeace on last year’s BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico have been recognized by both the Pictures of the Year International (POYi) and Days Japan magazine contests. The POYi judges gave an “Award of Excellence” to a set of twelve aerial photos of the spill in the general news picture story (GNPS) category. Days Japan magazine, which has a general category for all photojournalism produced over the previous two years, granted a “Special Prize by Juries” for an entry of the same oil spill photos. Daniel’s POYi portfolio was the only one focused on the oil spill to be given any recognition out of all the GNPS entrants. Likewise, the Days Japan award to Daniel was the only one for work on the spill.
