World Press Photo Award 2010

Last week the winners of the 2010 World Press Photo Contest were announced. While looking at those masterpieces in the winners gallery two main thoughts were wandering through my head:

  1. Too bad I have not worked hard enough to improve my little talent in order to become a photo journalist – maybe just a hundredth as good as these professsionals are.
  2. Great luck to my family and myself I have chosen the right way as a somehow talented manager and keeping photography as a passionate hobby – I don’t have to go where press photographers go.

Many of the awarded photographs are not for the faint-hearted. Be prepared.

There are some opportunities to see the pictures at exhibitions in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria:
