Todd Heisler Career
While at the Rocky Mountain News, Heisler won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for “Final Salute,” a year-long series of photographs profiling the funerals of Marines who died in the war and the work of then-major Steve Beck, who is in charge of notifying Marine’s family members of his death.
Heisler’s work was described as a “harrowing, behind-the-scenes view” at funerals in the award citation. He earned the award the same year as Jim Sheeler, a fellow Rocky Mountain News reporter who chronicled Major Beck, the Marine Honor Guard, and their families for nearly a year and acquired the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing in 2006. Time, Stern, the Sunday Times, Paris Match, Communication Arts, and other media have published images from the “Final Salute” project, in addition to the Rocky Mountain News.
Images from “Final Salute” also earned first place in the World Press Photo Awards’ “People in the News” category, first place in the National Headliner Awards’ “Newspaper Feature Photography” category, and the American Society of Newspaper Editors’ “Community Service Photojournalism” category.
Heisler has also received accolades from Visa Pour L’Image, including first place in the National Press Photographers Association’s Best of Photojournalism award for best-published picture story in a publication with a circulation of over 115,000, as well as first and second place in general news reporting in a newspaper from Pictures of the Year International, the Lead Award for “Photo of the Year,” and first prize for “People in the News” at the China International Press Photo Contest. Heisler also served on the panel of judges for the 2006 Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar.
