Dupa ce au analizat peste 80.000 de imagini inscrise de aproape 6000 de fotografi din 128 de tari, juratii de anul acesta au premiat 41 de fotografi. Trofeul “”World Press Photo of the Year” a mers in Australia, la fotograful liber profesionist Warren Richardson pentru imaginea impresionanta in alb-negru a emigrantilor care incercau sa treaca granite Ungariei.
Premiile de anul acesta au marcat o prima editie cu un nou cod de etica. Lars Boering, managing director al fundatiei World Photo, spune ca noile reguli au fost foarte benefice: “Acest nou cod de etica a insemnat ca mult mai multe inscrieri au fpost verificate, dar au fost gasite mult mai putine probleme. Anul acesta celebram munca incredibila si importanta a tuturor castigatorilor, in special pe cea a lui Warren Richardson.”
The results from the 59th Annual World Press Photo Contest have been announced!
After considering over 80,000 images submitted by nearly 6,000 photographers hailing from 128 countries, this year’s jury was able to award prizes to 41 different photographers. The winner of the coveted “World Press Photo of the Year” went to the Australian freelance photographer Warren Richardson for his haunting black and white picture of migrants trying to cross the border into Hungary.
This year’s awards marked the first year under a new, carefully crafted code of ethics. In the words of Lars Boering, the managing director of the World Press Photo Foundation, the new regulations were a great success:
“This new code resulted in many more entries being checked, but fewer problems than last year being found. Today, we celebrate the incredible and important work of all our prizewinners, especially Warren Richardson’s photograph.”
