Default world press photo 2006 winners

2006 World Press Photo Winners have been announced.

Few months ago (thanks to invitation from Alex - Randomcameraguy), I had a chance to meet and listen to Donald Weber, who represents Polaris Images, and got a honourable mention for Daily Life story. According to him (advise for anyone who wants to be photojournalist) the reason for him getting the job with main photo agencies (apart from decent photos - without this you won't even get an interview), was to prove to the agencies his ability to go to foreign places and be able to, without knowing language, get to places where most poeple don't even dream of going, homes of drug dealers, contaminated areas (Chernobyl), crime families, jails, etc etc etc.

While going through all the images, I noticed an image that got third place for arts and entertainment, from Salvadore Dali exhibition, and IMO what our Gal is able to produce from exhibitions is in a very similar style(sample), and at least on par with the image awarded this prize.

...thank you for the reference Peter, although I feel quite embarrassed because I think others do it much better and more consistently than I. The picture taken in Dali exhibition reminds me of a 1Gb flash card filled with photographs I took in Dali's museum in Figueras (Spain), that were erased due to a mistake of someone in an Internet [email protected]&/%@?!grrr....
