International judges awarded prizes for the competition across nine theme categories to a total of 54 phtoographers, including three Australians – Daniel Berehulak, Steve Christo and Adam Pretty.

The highly coveted world press photo of the year was awarded to South African photographer Jodi Bieber for a portrait of Bibi Aisha, an 18 year old woman from Afghanistan, who after fleeing her husband’s house complaining of violent treatment had the Taliban arrive and take her back to her husband’s family for punishment.

Bieber has previously won eight world press photo awards and her exhibition, Las Canas, was presented at Brisbane Powerhouse in 2009.

Members of the public are warned that the exhibition contains images that may offend ant that it is recommended for people aged 15 years and older. More info at: brisbanepowerhouse.org
