The Louisiana State Museum hosts the "Visions of Excellence" photojournalism exhibit. It includes 53 winners in a variety of categories spanning national and international news, politics, sports, science and more. The photo above is the New York Times' Damon Winters' entry in the new media campaign coverage category. The competition was initiated at the Missouri school of Journalism in 1944 to highlight photos from World War II. Currently functioning as Pictures of the Year International, the annual contest is still administered by the Missouri School of Journalism. The state museum hosted last year's winners as well. The expo is cosponsored by PhotoNOLA. The show is on display in the Arsenal Gallery at the Cabildo. The show opens Dec. 3 and runs through March 3, 2010.
