At the official awards ceremony for the jubilee 25th annual Czech Press Photo contest in the Old Town Hall’s Brožík Hall, the winners of the photo and video categories were announced. The title Photograph of the Year was awarded to a symbolic image of a flag waving over the heads of thousands of demonstrators at Letná Park taken by Lukáš Bíba of the Economia media company. The international jury selected the winning images from almost four thousand photographs by 270 authors.

Eight photography categories and three video categories were set up this year. 270 photographers took part, submitting almost four thousand photographs in total. Submissions were made electronically over the course of the whole of September. Our expert international jury looked through the entrants from 10 to 12 October at the Czech Photo Centre gallery, comprising: Chairman, photographer Petr Josek; Czech Press Photo founder Daniela Mrázková; Director of World Press Photo programmes David Campbell; teacher and VU pictures editor Pascal Philippe; Director of Panos Pictures Adrian Evans, Czech photographer Herbert Slavík; curator Lucia Benická; photographer Amak Mahmoodian; and picture editor Colin Jacobson.
