WINNERS

The International Association of Fire Fighters Media Awards Contest, conducted annually, honors reporting and photography that best portray the professional and dangerous work of fire fighters and emergency medical personnel in the United States and Canada.

Every day, in largely unpredictable locations, the vital work of fire fighters and rescue workers comes alive in news photos and stories, in newspapers, on television, radio and the web. What IAFF members accomplish -- at work sites not of their own choosing -- becomes vividly apparent to viewers and readers well beyond the local. Yet many of the stories and pictures honored here underscore something equally valuable: they put a face on these fire fighters, documenting their humanity as citizens who contribute to their communities in their off hours as well.

In 2009, the contest attracted 244 entries.
