World Press Photo Awards
Thank you to my friend, Ewan, who brought this to my attention. The World Press Photo Awards for 2008 were announced today in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. You can see all the photographs at the World Press Photo site, or see a slide show highlight at The Guardian.
The awards were created in 1955 to support professional press photographers worldwide. This year’s winning images range from the beautiful to the heart-breaking, spanning the wide spectrum of human emotions. Please spend some time looking at them.
