The Los Angeles Press Club’s 2016 Quinn Award for Lifetime Achievement will be bestowed on legendary Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Nick Ut. Ut’s iconic Associated Press photo of 9-year-old Kim Phuc fleeing a Napalm bombing captured the conscience of a Nation during the Vietnam War. Ut did not merely snap an important Historical image, he had to help and took the burned and terrified children to the American hospital.
Nick Ut will be introduced by another media legend, Pulitzer Prize winning war correspondent Peter Arnett.
The award will be presented at the LAPC Gala event at the Biltmore Millennium’s Crystal Ballroom on Sunday, June 26th.
