First place, feature category: Ruth Bonneville / Winnipeg Free Press

The winners of the News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) 2013 awards were announced Saturday night during a gala in Vancouver.

The Winnipeg Free Press won big, with honours going to photojournalists Ruth Bonneville, Joe Bryksa and multimedia editor Melissa Tait.

Bryksa and Tait won first place in the team multimedia category for Swimming Deaf, a video following the training of local swimmer Thomas Osborn, 17, for the 2013 Deaflympics.

"We are delighted that the work of Ruth, Joe and Melissa has earned this national recognition. There is so much power in their journalism, and such a connection to our audience via their visual storytelling," said Free Press editor Paul Samyn.

Bonneville won first place in the feature category for a photo taken on what remains of her family farm in southwestern Manitoba and earned an honourable mention in the social-issues category for a photo taken at an orphanage in Kampala, Uganda.

The Brandon Sun's Tim Smith also captured first place in the pictorial category for an aerial photo of floodwaters in western Manitoba and was a runner-up for photographer of the year.

More than 1,150 images and multimedia projects from across Canada were entered in this year's competition.

The winners were announced during the National Pictures of the Year Gala event at the Historic Sun Yet Sen Gardens.
