EPUK, the organization for editorial photographers in the United Kingdom and Ireland, posted its 2006 Golden Sureshot Awards [2] today — which take humorous shots at numerous industry targets.

EPUK’s most merciless criticism is of Jonathan Klein, CEO of Getty Images, who received the “Black Hole Award for Disservices to Professional Photographers”:

The judges commented: “Where to begin? Economists like to say that when America sneezes the world catches cold; we say when Jonathan Klein breaks wind the photo industry chokes … Getty’s superb year was doubtless appreciated by their stockholders, who were rewarded with a drop in the share price from slightly over $90 at the beginning of the year to just over $41 at year’s close.

Ouch.
