Winners revealed!
World Press Photo Multimedia Contest
for 2015

March 2015

After a closely debated final judging session, the international jury of the 2015 World Press Photo Multimedia Contest has announced the winners and runners-up in the ever-evolving competition for multimedia storytelling. Awarding prizes in the three categories of the competition – Short Feature, Long Feature and Interactive Documentary – the standard throughout each section impressed everybody...

Reflecting on the contest, Jury chair Marianne Lévy-Leblond, Head of Web Productions and Transmedia Projects, Arte France, told CPN: “The web is a place of transmission and viewing and is now of major importance to us. It can generate a number of new things, allowing for different tools to be used in terms of creativity. The other very important thing is that a new kind of relationship is existing between content producer and the audience. A new kind of conversation is being started there.”

On the standard of work seen this year, she added: “The general ambition of the submissions has risen. We are in the fifth year of this contest now and although the standard has been very high I would say there is still some work to do in terms of expanding the diversity of sources, both geographically and professionally.”

Speaking about the winning submission for the Short Features category, Marianne Lévy-Leblond said: “The question of citizen journalism has been on the agenda for a number of years now and it provides for new openings as to what is a document. The person who filmed Eric Garner’s arrest and death provided the press with something really exceptional, but the editing work was another layer of journalism that was absolutely needed.”

“What kind of editorial challenge is raised by footage like this? And how do journalists and press organisations work around this kind of document and convey the meaning to the audience?” she continued. “These are all very fundamental questions that are being asked now. Yes, the piece relied on the footage but it wasn’t all about that footage.”

Jury member Barbara Davidson, staff photojournalist at the Los Angeles Times, who helped judge the Short and Long Feature categories, commented on the 2nd Prize winning entry to the Short Feature category 'Fighting Ebola Outbreak Street by Street’, saying: “It was incredibly effective storytelling. It was very powerful. It was very raw. It made you feel as though you were there and one of the judges actually said that, after watching the film, he was fearful that he would catch Ebola. So I would say that's very powerful storytelling."

Lars Boering, Managing Director of World Press Photo said: “After organising the multimedia contest for five years, we can clearly see growth, both in the quality and quantity of the entries received, as well as in the audience that consumes these journalistic productions. World Press Photo has kept and will keep track of the developments in digital storytelling and will share them with people worldwide.”

1ST PRIZE SHORT FEATURE: Behind the Video of Eric Garner's Deadly Confrontation With New York Police

© Paul Moakley, Time

On 17 July 2014, Ramsey Orta was talking to his friend Eric Garner in New York, USA, about where to eat dinner: Friday’s, maybe, or Applebee’s. They eventually decided on Buffalo Wild Wings, but Garner never made it. Soon, a fight broke out nearby, Orta says, and after Garner helped break it up, New York Police Department (NYPD) officers on the scene accused Garner of selling untaxed cigarettes and attempted to arrest him. Garner, a 43-year-old father of six who was unarmed at the time, argued with the officers about why he was being targeted. To corral Garner, one officer used what appeared to be a chokehold, a technique banned by the NYPD. Several others helped drag him to the ground. Garner, who had a history of health problems, died soon after. The video includes an interview with Orta, who filmed the incident on Staten Island.

2ND PRIZE SHORT FEATURE: Fighting Ebola Outbreak Street by Street

© Ben C. Solomon, The New York Times

Health care systems in Monrovia were unable to keep up with Ebola as it quickly spread between communities. Some local ambulance workers were infected with the virus, while others were attacked for not getting to patients in time. This film follows ambulance nurse Gordon Kamara and his crew at the height of the Ebola outbreak in September 2014.

3RD PRIZE SHORT FEATURE: At the Gates of Europe

© Carlos Spottorno

The consequences of conflicts related to the Arab Spring, such as the wars in Libya and Syria, have triggered a massive wave of refugees. On 3 October 2013, 366 immigrants trying to reach the Italian island of Lampedusa drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. Shortly after, the Italian government launched Operation Mare Nostrum, involving five Italian navy war ships and other additional resources. This short documentary follows a search and rescue operation of nearly 200 immigrants, mainly from Pakistan and Syria, who were found drifting in the sea between Lampedusa and Tunisia. The film ends with rare footage of the refugee centre of Mineo, Sicily, the largest of its kind in Europe, where many rescued by the Italian navy end up.

Set in Seattle, Washington, USA, and unfolding over several years, The Long Night explores the crisis of minors entangled in the American sex trade. The film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives have been forever changed by this issue. The viewer is submerged into the experience of what it has been like for Natalie and Lisa to survive this life; for Tom and Nacole to watch their daughter slip out of their hands; and for Andy and his fellow police officers, Brian and Joel, to try and create a more just system.

2ND PRIZE LONG FEATURE: The Fence

© Charles Ommanney

The border the United States shares with Mexico is nearly 2,000 miles long and is comprised of numerous natural and man-made barriers. The construction of the most significant man-made barrier, “The Fence” started in 2006, has cost more than 3 billion dollars and spans around 700miles (1,126km). This documentary, made in June 2014, follows the residents, border patrol agents and immigrants who pass back and forth across the border every day. It explores their feelings about The Fence and investigates what it has achieved as an instrument of immigration reform.

3RD PRIZE LONG FEATURE: Net Café Refugees

© MediaStorm. A still image from Net Café Refugees

The recession of the 1990s increased the pressure on Japanese white-collar workers, instilling a fear-based culture where even working long hours does not guarantee job security, or a salary adequate to rent an apartment. Over the last decade, it has become common for many in Japan to use Internet cafés as living quarters.
