You are capturing a specific subject in a straightforward manner that tells a story. Photojournalism became popular in the 1880s, when newspaper presses could reproduce halftone images. The 'Golden Age' of photojournalism started in the 1930s after the invention of the compact Leica camera and flashbulbs; it attracted some of the finest photographers of the generation. Glossy, quality, high-circulation magazines such as 'Life' and 'Look' featured photojournalism at its best. Famous photojournalists include Carol Szathmari, Matthew Brady, Jacob Riis, Robert Capa, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Luc Delahaye, Zoriah Miller, and Manuel Rivera-Ortiz.

Liberation Day in Uganda

10th place
I took this picture, during the 25th anniversary of the liberation of Uganda. It was held in the city of Masaka, and the president Yoweri Museveni was present. This picture shows the police force doing a parade for the president. The city of Masaka, is known for NOT supporting the president, so strategically it was a good place to show of the forces, to avoid riots when the election began. Museveni won by the way. In power for 25 years now, and will be for the next five as well.
