51st World Press Photo Awards

The international jury of the 51st annual World Press Photo Contest selected a color image by UK photographer Tim Hetherington as World Press Photo of the Year 2007. The image shows a American soldier resting at a bunker near Korengal Valley, Afghanistan.

The annual World Press Photo contest is at the core of the organization's activities. It offers an overview of how press photographers tackle their work worldwide and how the press gives us the news, bringing together pictures from all parts of the globe to reflect trends and developments in photojournalism. The contest is open to all professional press photographers. There is no entry fee.
