Since its launch in 1955 in Amsterdam, World Press Photo has become the world’s most prestigious photography competition and one of the most successful worldwide exhibitions, annually presenting a number of visual stories from across the world. Marking its 61st anniversary, this year’s exhibition features the award-winning photos of Ronaldo Schemidt’s “Venezuela Crisis” depicting a man caught on fire during violent clashes with police in Venezuela (Agence France Presse); Adam Ferguson’s “Boko Haram Strapped Suicide Bombs” (The New York Times) depicting a Nigerian teenage girl who was kidnapped by Boko Haram and assigned a suicide bombing mission, but managed to escape and find help instead of detonating the bombs; Thomas P. Peschak’s “Jump,” the snap photo of several rockhopper penguins navigating the rugged coastline of Marion Island in the Indian Ocean; Ivor Prickett’s “The Battle for Mosul,” depicting an unidentified young boy being carried out of the last ISIS-controlled area in Mosul, Iraq (The New York Times), and more.
