    Jean-Marc Bouju wins premier award

    The international jury of the 47th annual World Press Photo contest has selected as World Press Photo of the Year 2003 a color image of the French photographer Jean-Marc Bouju of The Associated Press. The picture shows a detained Iraqi man comforting his 4-year-old-son at a regroupment center for POWs near Najaf, Iraq. The picture was taken on 31 March 2003.

    4,176 professional photographers from 124 countries participated in this year’s World Press Photo contest, the premier annual international competition in press photography. With a total number of 63,093 images, the 2004 contest attracted a record number of entries. The percentage of digital submissions also shows an exceptional increase: 80.7 percent of all images were submitted in digital format (in 2003 this figure was 69%). The judging took place in Amsterdam 1-12 February. The jury gave prizes in 10 theme categories to 61 photographers of 23 nationalities from: Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Cuba, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Palestinian Territories, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and the USA.
