George Washington University alumna Wendy Galietta, BFA ’06, won the 2023 Innovative Storytelling Award from the National Press Foundation (NPF) for her work on a Washington Post series that showed how bullets from an AR-15 eviscerate human tissue and organs. The immersive series, “The Blast Effect,” was highlighted by NPF judges for the immense visual impact it has on viewers. 

Galietta is a projects editor leading cross-platform storytelling and strategy for the Washington Post's enterprise reporting and investigations. She was previously a photo editor collaborating across nearly all reporting desks at The Post to curate award-winning coverage.
