Photographers capturing the Ebola epidemic in West Africa and turmoil in Ferguson, Missouri. took home this year's Pulitzer prizes for Feature and Breaking News Photography. Daniel Berehulak, a freelancer shooting for the New York Times, was honored for his images from West Africa where he spent four months in the Ebola zone. The Saint Louis Post-Dispatch photography staff was recognized for its coverage of the protests that began there last August following the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. 

Berehulak is a three-time World Press Photo winner and was a Pulitzer finalist in 2011 for his photos of 2010 Pakistan floods. For three straight weeks he remained in an Ebola treatment unit among highly contagious patients, and his four month stay in the Ebola zone has been the longest deployment of any photographer. 

The Saint Louis Dispatch-Post's coverage of the civil unrest in Ferguson began the day that reports reached the paper of the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year old African American shot by white police officer Darren Wilson. The photo staff covered the chaos of the subsequent protests and looting in Ferguson, using Wi-Fi technology to get images out of the scene to the paper's website and social media outlets in real time.
