World Press Photo 2013

Here are some finalists of the World Press Photo 2013 to reward the best in photojournalism of the year.

Paul Hansen of Sweden, a photographer working for the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, won the World Press Photo of the Year 2013 with this picture of a group of men carrying the bodies of two dead children through a street in Gaza City taken on Nov. 20, 2012. Jury member Mayu Mohanna said about the photo: "The strength of the picture lies in the way it contrasts the anger and sorrow of the adults with the innocence of the children. It's a picture I will not forget."
