The defining image of 2012: Stunning overall winner at the World Press Photo Awards


The winners of the World Press Photo Awards, one of photojournalism's most prestigious contests, were announced yesterday, issuing awards in nine categories to 54 photographers of 32 nationalities. The overall winner was Swedish photographer Paul Hansen for his picture of two Palestinian children killed in an Israeli missile strike being carried to their funeral. 'The strength of the pictures lies in the way it contrasts the anger and sorrow of the adults with the innocence of the children,' said jury member Mayu Mohanna of Peru. 'It's a picture I will not forget.' (Daily Mail, London)
