Brawdy placed third in the non-metro news category with a photo titled, Distraught Man Talked off Bridge.
The photo shows Kennewick police’s Sgt. Ken Lattin talking to a man standing on the outside of the cable bridge in Feb. 18.
The non-metro division consisted of newspapers with a circulation of less than 50,000 papers per day. Northwest AP includes newspapers in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
The photos were judged by the staff of the Bowling Green Daily News.
