World Press Photo of the Year 2013
The World Press Photo contest is certainly prestigious: after all, this year—its 57th year—more than 5,000 photographers from 132 different countries submitted more than 90,000 photographs in the hopes of winning. And there are only 27 prizes—first, second and third in nine categories. Here are some of the finest photos from that crop, which will now be touring the world as part of an exhibit.
