Mexican Ulises Ruiz Basurto, a photojournalist with Agencia EFE, Spain's international news agency, won the 2013 Jalisco Journalism Prize in the still photography category, the jury said Sunday.

Ruiz Basurto won the prize for a photograph titled "Ecocidio en la presa El Hurtado" and taken in July in Tlajomulco, a city in the western Mexican state of Jalisco.

The photograph shows a person on a boat "crossing amid thousands of dead fish" after an environmental crime was committed.

Ruiz Basurto, who was born in Zacatlan, Puebla, in 1976, has been a photographer for 17 years and has worked for Agencia EFE for the past eight years. EFE
