The Lucie Awards is the annual gala ceremony that celebrates master photographers and their contributions to the field of photography. Honorees are determined each year by the Lucie Awards Advisory Board, and pre-announced.
So basically, the Lucie Awards is like the Academy Awards for the photography industry.
At this year's 9th Annual Lucie Awards held on October 24th in NYC, it was great to see two African-American photographers honored. The 2011 honorees of note are:
Dawoud Bey for Achievement in Portraiture
Eli Reed for Achievement in Documentary Photography Award
Also honored was the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki for Achievement in Fine Art.
