Vietnamese-American Nick Ut wins Lifetime Award


VietNamNet Bridge – Besides the Pulitzer and other awards over the years, Associated Press photographer Nick Ut, a Vietnamese American, will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Asian American Journalist Association (AAJA), the Vietnam Reporting Project said.

In 1972, Ut won the Pulitzer Prize for his image of 9-year-old Phan Thi Kim Phuc as she ran naked and screaming toward his camera, her skin badly burned from a napalm attack on her village during the Vietnam War.

After taking a photo of the girl, Nick rushed the girl to the hospital, saving her life.
