Picture Dept: Nominated for a Webby!

Picture Dept is one aspect of the NewsBeast social media team. Together, with Newsweek, Cheat Sheet, and Newsweek Archivist, we’re finalists for a Webby in the “Social:  News & Information” category. 

None of this would be possible without the talent, generosity, and enthusiasm of all of the great photographers, curators, galleries, and publishers we’ve worked with—the above montage features just a few selections from our archive over the past year.

It’s a great honor to be nominated (e.g. the internet version of the Oscars) but we’re up against some pretty stiff competition: CNN, NBC, The New York Times, and…The New York Times

So please, if you’re a fan of Picture Dept, please take a moment and visit the Webby’s website to vote for the NewsBeast entry.

What an awesome photosheet that is. 

See it bigger on Picture Dept.

Screams of Victory!

After yesterday’s gymnastics photo mash-up was so popular, we decided to look at some more Olympic event coverage.

Most likely people do not think of fencing as a dramatic sport, but as more of an aristocratic, civilized past-time. However that may chance after taking a look at these images of the Olympic fencing.

Happy Birthday Martin Luther King Jr.

Pictured: Among his landmark early addresses, King’s speech that day, known as “Give Us the Ballot,” urged President Eisenhower and members of Congress to protect the most basic rights of democracy for all American citizens:

“We come humbly to say to the men in the forefront of our government that the civil rights issue is not an ephemeral, evanescent domestic issue that can be kicked about by reactionary guardians of the status quo,” King said in his powerful, rich preacher’s voice. “It is rather an eternal moral issue which may well determine the destiny of our nation…. The hour is late. The clock of destiny is ticking out. We must act now, before it is too late.”
