About "The Week in Pictures" and "The Week in Sports Pictures"
Msnbc.com's "The Week in Pictures" made its debut Oct. 16, 1998. "The Week in Sports Pictures" launched on October 25, 2002. Our goal is to create an outlet for the best photojournalism. We endevour to publish pictures that will affect our readers, make them feel the emotions behind the news, and help them better understand the world.

These slideshows also serve as a historical record of events that change the course of history as well as unique, slice-of-life moments from around the globe.

Each week, msnbc.com multimedia producers review more than 70,000 images to make the initial selection for "The Week in Pictures" and "The Week in Sports Pictures." Sources include wire services, picture agencies, small and large newspapers and scores of freelance photojournalists working around the globe.

Every Thursday morning three multimedia producers make the final selection for "The Week in Pictures." Every Sunday evening, two multimedia producers select images for "The Week in Sports Pictures." The quality of the available photographs dictates the number of images published each week.

Different multimedia producers are involved in the final edit each week to encourage a diversity of viewpoints in selecting the best storytelling images. After editing and production, "The Week in Pictures" is published every Thursday afternoon. "The Week in Sports Pictures" updates every Monday morning.

Each week we invite our readers to vote for the Reader's Choice Award.

At the end of the year, we produce The Year in Pictures, where we combine the best news images with music and news clips to take a look back at the most important visual news events of the year.

If you have any questions or comments, please write to us.
