Photo of the year 2012

World Press Photo's Photo of the Year 2012

Congratulations to Swedish photographer Paul Hansen. Paul won World Press Photo’s Photo of the Year with his amazing image of two Palestinian children killed in an Israeli missile strike being carried to their funeral.

Paul’s image is really breath taking and striking. Conveying both anger and sorrow as well the innocence of the two children. It’s just so incredibly powerful, and absolutely deserving of the recognition.

Huge congratulations to Paul, well done.
