How many photos do you look at while choosing the Year in Pictures?
Jeffrey: About 150,000.
Meaghan: Wow, that’s so specific.
Jeffrey: I’ve been asked this question before.
Meaghan: It’s many tens of thousands. We do our best to try to look over everything that has been shot by our staff photographers as well as everything that’s been shot on assignment for us. We’re also searching by wire agency and by topic. For one staff photographer, you’re looking at several thousand images for the year. So it adds up pretty quickly.
