Graphic warning (of a different kind) to be subject of Reemtsma award

| March 26, 2014

A competition to find the best images captured by photo-journalists during the past 12 months has been launched ahead of the 2014 Reemtsma Liberty Award (RLA).

Now in its eighth year, the RLA recognizes journalists who work under the most testing conditions to sustain freedom of the press.

And this year a photographic category has been added with a shortlist of 20 images, such as the one shown here,UK2 picture2 on the Liberty Award Facebook page.

The three images with the most ‘likes’ will be awarded a prize and exhibited during the RLA evening being staged in Berlin on April 10.

“We wanted to recognise professional and non-professional photographs that capture the spirit of freedom,” said Svea Schröder, media relations manager Germany.

“The images used to illustrate news stories can be equally as important and just as dangerous to gather as the written or spoken word.”
