Abstract:

"Every year since 1955 an international jury has convened in Holland under the auspices of the World Press Photo Foundation to choose the finest press photographs of the year. Universally recognised as the definitive competition for photographic reporting, it has been described by Michael Rand, for many years Art Director of the Sunday Times Magazine, as 'the international photographic contest'. Publishing the results of the forty-ninth annual World Press Photo Contest, this exceptional book contains the most haunting and inspiring photographs from 2005 - over 180 pictures submitted by photojournalists, picture agencies, newspapers and magazines throughout the world. Selected from over 83,000 images taken by nearly 4,500 photographers representing 122 countries, these prize-winning photos capture the most powerful, moving and sometimes disturbing events of the year."--Page 4 of cover.
