February 2011

The international jury of the 54th annual World Press Photo Contest has selected a photograph by South African photographer Jodi Bieber as the World Press Photo of the Year 2010 from a record total entry of over 108,000 photographs. The portrait of Bibi Aisha was also awarded First prize in the 'Portraits Singles' category of the contest - the image was shot for Time and featured on the 1 August 2010 issue of the magazine.

2nd prize, People in the News Singles. Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, London, 30 September.

Jodi Bieber's winning picture shows Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old woman from Oruzgan province in Afghanistan, who fled back to her family home from her husband's house, complaining of violent treatment. The Taliban arrived one night, demanding that Bibi be handed over to face justice. After a Taliban commander pronounced his verdict, Bibi's brother-in-law held her down and her husband sliced off her ears and then cut off her nose. Bibi was abandoned, left for dead, but was later rescued by aid workers and the American military. After time in a women's refuge in Kabul, she was taken to America, where she received counselling and reconstructive surgery. Bibi Aisha now lives in the USA.

Jodi Bieber has previously won eight World Press Photo awards and is only the second South African photographer to win the highest honour in the contest. She is a former participant of World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass, where she returned as a master in 2010. Bieber is represented by the Institute for Artist Management and the Goodman Gallery.

The World Press Photo jury's conclusion

Commenting on the winning image World Press Photo jury chair David Burnett said: "This could become one of those pictures - and we have maybe just ten in our lifetime - where if somebody says 'you know, that picture of a girl...', you know exactly which one they're talking about."

Speaking at the World Press Photo Contest press conference held in the Boekmanzaal, Amsterdam City Hall, on 11 February 2010 Burnett explained: "It's an interesting choice - it's not one of the big news events of last year. It kind of speaks to a smaller scale, but nonetheless very prevalent, type of event which is happening all the time. It's a powerful story... it engages the audience to ask more questions, rather than giving answers. This picture stands on its own - it's very iconic, very disturbing. It's a tough picture - it's not easy to look at."

2nd prize, Nature Stories. Whooper Swans at dawn, Hokkaido, Japan, January.

Jury member Ruth Eichhorn, Director of Photography for GEO, commented: "It's an incredibly strong image. It sends out an enormously powerful message to the world, about the 50% of the population that are women, so many of whom still live in miserable conditions, suffering violence. It is strong because the woman looks so dignified, iconic."

Juror Aidan Sullivan, Vice President of Photo Assignments, Getty Images, explained: "Part of what the World Press Photo contest does is to take pictures to a wider audience, an audience that is going to ask why? And this photo makes people ask "What on earth...?" "What's going on...?" "What has happened...?" For me, this was the picture that asked the most important questions."

Canon is one of the worldwide sponsors of World Press Photo and Kieran Magee, Professional Imaging Marketing Director, Canon Europe, commented: "Powerful images bring news and events to life and make them resonate more strongly with us, the viewing public. We feel hugely privileged to have a relationship with World Press Photo that has spanned an eventful 19 years of history and showcases Canon’s commitment to the Power of Image. The incredible images from this year’s entrants have continued to raise the bar for photojournalism and we would like to congratulate each and every entrant for their fantastic contribution."

The jury gave prizes in nine themed categories to 56 photographers of 23 nationalities from: Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Haiti, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Somalia, South Africa, Spain and the USA.

During the two-week period of judging the 19-strong jury viewed a record number of photographs with 108,059 images submitted by 5,691 photographers from 125 different nationalities.

Jury awards a 'Special Mention'

Following the judging of the contest, the jury decided to award a Special Mention to a 12-picture series of photographs made by the miners trapped for 69 days inside the San José mine in Chile, 700 metres underground, before they were rescued on 13 October 2010.

The pictures show the difficult conditions inside the mine and feature one of the men, Eduardo Peña, a keen runner who kept up his exercises underground. Writer Dan McDougall and photographer Adam Patterson spent weeks with the Peña family before he was rescued and began corresponding with him by letter. McDougall and Patterson were able to send Peña a pair of running shoes and a small digital camera down into the mineshaft where he was trapped. Panos Pictures is licensing the pictures on behalf of Eduardo Peña.

Jury member Abir Abdullah commented: "This recognition opens up the possibility of showing citizen journalism, when professional photographers have not had the opportunity to be some place, but because of technological development, someone can record it. It brings us into a new era that challenges professionals, and this is a good example of a photo from a place where a photojournalist could not possibly have been."

Fellow jury member Vince Aletti noted: "We are able to see the conditions... the images respond to our curiosity in a vivid way."

The jury considers a visual document 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.
