Baltimore Sun visuals editor wins White House News Photographers awards

Baltimore Sun visuals editor wins photography awards.

The Baltimore Sun's Christopher T. Assaf has won awards of excellence and first-place in The White House News Photographers Association's 2016 Eyes of History: Still Contest.

A visuals content editor who has been at The Sun for 13 years, Assaf won a first-place award in the Domestic News category and an award of excellence in the Pictorial category.

His Domestic News submission shows a man screaming on the ground near Lexington Market. The man was suspected of looting and chased by police during the rioting after the burial of Freddie Gray.

His Pictorial submission shows a storm blowing fast through the mountains behind a vintage camping trailer on Halloween.

The White House News Photographers Association is a 95-year-old nonprofit that works to support the efforts of Washington's visual journalists.

The association holds an annual photography and video competition.
