Congratulations are in order for Emily Schiffer, who was recently named the winner of the 2009 Inge Morath Award.

The prize of $5000, which is awarded by the Inge Morath Foundation and The Magnum Foundation, "is given annually to a female documentary photographer under the age of 30, in memory of the late Magnum photographer Inge Morath."

The other finalist for the award was Jenn Ackerman, who is also a Barnstorm XXI alumna.

Congrats to the students of Barnstorm XXII!
