Photographer snares award for bombing coverage

STEPHEN Dupont won the photojournalism section of the United Nations Association of Australia Media Peace Awards last night for his coverage in Fairfax papers of a suicide blast in Afghanistan that nearly killed him.

He had been travelling with a convoy of Afghani police when a Taliban suicide bomber attacked, killing around 15 and wounding 14, including Dupont, who suffered minor head injuries.

You can read Dupont’s personal account of the incident and access a slideshow of his images at the New York Times’ blog The Lede by clicking here.
