World Press Photo 2013

Today the awards for the worlds best press photos were published at World Press Photo 2013. Lots of excellent photos there. By nature most are of conflicts and strife. After all a picture speaks a thousand words. The winning photo comes from Sweden and is by Paul Hansen. Pretty cool to win such a prestigious award IMHO.

My own favorite is the nature picture of an emperor penguin rising towards the surface that can be seen here.

Great pictures move people and hopefully can increase awareness of the condition of life outside our homes and hometowns.
