February 2010

The international jury of the 53rd annual World Press Photo Contest has selected a photograph by Italian freelance photographer Pietro Masturzo as the World Press Photo of the Year 2009 from a record total entry of over 101,000 photographs. The picture depicts women shouting in protest from a rooftop in Tehran on 24 June 2009. The winning photograph is part of a story depicting the nights following the contested presidential elections in Iran, when people shouted their dissent from roofs and balconies, after daytime protests in the streets. The story as a whole was awarded first prize in the category People in the News.

The World Press Photo Contest jury chair Ayperi Karabuda Ecer said: "The photo shows the beginning of something, the beginning of a huge story. It adds perspectives to news. It touches you both visually and emotionally, and my heart went out to it immediately."

Fellow juror Guy Tillim commented: "The difficulty in photographing conflict situations is one of portraying the parallel lives involved, of people going on with their lives. This picture has made a very good attempt at marrying these two elements, in giving the conflict a context – and that is a holy grail of photography. The photographer does it with a very beautiful image of an Iranian landscape, which would be worth looking at in itself. But it also arouses our curiosity about the woman shouting – incorporating this moment, the importance of this historical event. It represents a very honest and successful attempt at taking forward our vocabulary of showing things."

The jury gave prizes in 10 themed categories to 63 photographers of 23 nationalities from: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Ecuador, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mali, Mexico, the Netherlands, Palestinian Territories, Peru, Somalia, Sweden, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States.

During the two weeks of judging the jury viewed a record number of photographs with 101,960 images submitted by 5,847 photographers. The photographers represent 128 different nationalities. Entries by photographers from Asia continued to increase steadily, with the majority of entries coming from China with 586 submissions (compared to 2009:490 submissions) and Indonesia with 107 submissions (2009: 77). Africa also had a higher number of entries, with a 7.5% increase. European photographers were well represented, with a significant increase from photographers from Italy with 370 entries (2009: 306) and Russia with 156 entries (2009: 130).

Jury names a 'Special Mention'

Following the judging of the contest, the jury decided to name a 'Special Mention', recognising a frame grab from a video posted on YouTube in June 2009 during the post-election uprising in Iran. It depicts a woman identified as Neda Agha-Soltan lying on the ground after being shot in the chest. The jury considers an image for a Special Mention when it has played an essential role in the news reporting of the year worldwide and could not have been made by a professional photographer.

Jury member David Griffin of National Geographic commented: "I am pleased that World Press Photo has provided an avenue for non-professional images that have a significant impact on the historical visual record."

Pietro Masturzo, the author of the World Press Photo of the Year 2009, will receive his award during an awards ceremony in Amsterdam on 2 May 2010. The award also carries a cash prize of €10,000 and key World Press Photo sponsor Canon will donate a Canon EOS DSLR camera and lens kit to Pietro Masturzo.

The awards ceremony will be preceded by a two-day programme of lectures, discussions and screenings of the winning photography from the 2009 contest. The exhibition of prize-winning photography will be shown at the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam, from 23 April to 20 June 2010 and will subsequently visit over 100 locations around the world. For a provisional exhibition schedule visit: www.worldpressphoto.org/exhibitions.

World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon and TNT.
