The rule of thirds is a visual composition in which an image is divided uniformly into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, and the image's subject is positioned at the intersection or along several of the dividing lines. Using the rule of thirds to build dynamic images that are pleasing to the eye is a great way to start. This research seeks to determine if photojournalists adhere to the rule of thirds while constructing a frame in that genre, and perhaps even the efficacy of rule of thirds in breaking news photography.The validity of the rule of thirds in photojournalism is clearly examined in this paper, specifically whether photographers use it, whether they snap pictures with it, and how it affects the results.Photographerscan't do a pre-production stage for breaking news photography because it's done on the fly.PulitzerPrizeis a recognition award for excellence in newspaper journalism, literary achievements, musical composition.For the study, a qualitative analysis will be employed. From 2001 through 2020, images that won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography were analysed based on their substance. The approach of random sampling is favoured.
