The best press photos from the world's largest annual press photography contest.
Every year since 1956 has seen a contest and a winning image. Some of the photos have become iconic - a naked girl running after a napalm attack in Vietnam; a Buddhist monk who has set himself alight; a sole demonstrator standing in front of tanks on Tiananmen Square. Others have set trends, established styles of press photography that can be seen re-emerging in years to come.
See the winning shots in News, Sports, Daily Life, Portraits, Arts, and Nature. Extraordinary photos often taken in extraordinary circumstances.
