World Press Photo 2009

Juryen for den 52. årlige World Press Photo har valgt en svart-hvitt bilde av amerikansk fotografen Anthony Suau som World Press Photo of the Year 2008.

Bildet viser en bevæpnet politimann i Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department som gjennomsøker et hjem i Cleveland, Ohio. Beboerne i huset er kastet ut, siden de ikke har betalt lånet. Bildet er tatt i mars 2008, og var en del av en reportasje bestilt av Time magazine. Historien som helhet vant Second Prize i kategorien "dagligliv".

Juryens leder, Maryanne Golon, sier dette om bildet: "Bildets styreke er kontrastene. Det ser ut som en klassisk fotografi fra en krigssone, men det viser bare hvordan mennesker blir kastet ut fra et hus. Krigen i sin klassiske forstand kommer på denne måten inn i folks hus fordi de ikke kan betale sine boliglån"

Juryen delte ut premier i 10 kategorier. I alt ble 63 fotografer fra 27 nasjonaliteter premiert. Til sammen 96.268 fotografier ble sendt for å bli bedømt, noe som tilsvarer en økning på 19,5% sammenlignet med i fjor. Totalt 5.508 fotografer sendte inn sine arbeid, som er en økning på 9,7% sammenlignet med 2008.

Anthony Suau, fotografen av World Press Photo of the Year 2008, vil få sin pris under en seremoni i Amsterdam søndag 2 mai 2009. Prisen inkluderer en pengepremie på 10.000 euro.

Utstillingen av prisvinnerne vises på Oude Kerk fra 4 mai til 28 juni og vil senere gå over 100 steder over hele verden. (Se bilder fra World Press Photo, Oude Kerk i 2007)
