From a total of 100,000 entries, the winners of the World Press Photo awards 2013 have been announced in Amsterdam. There are some truly amazing images to be seen both among the winners and the various runner-ups. One of my personal favourites is the winner of the “sports action – singles” category:
The image shows a jockey clutching to the tails of two bulls tearing across a rice field during Pacu Jawi, a traditional bull race which marks the end of harvest season in Batu Sangkar, West Sumatra, Indonesia. The image bursts with energy, motion, life … truly impressive. Also the photos in the other categories are striking. You can check them out on the World Press Photo awards website.
