Ozbilici immediately realized this was a serious and historic situation. Then he turned his back and photographed the terrified crowd.

When special forces finally came, Ozbilici was the last one to leave the room, taking one last photograph as he was escorted out. This year the focus of the contest was the importance of freedom of expression and freedom of the press.

The stories behind the World Press Photo Awards

This goal can at times be challenging as the organization refuses to censor any of their photographs. While walking through the exhibition, it is easy to understand what has stopped certain countries from displaying the collection.

This year-old Syrian freelance photographer used his work in hopes of contributing to a better situation for his country. A corpse wearing a red life jacket is seen floating in the endless water of the Mediterranean Sea.

This shocking and powerful photograph by British photojournalist Mathieu Willcocks shows the fate of about 4, individuals in alone, according to the UN refugee agency.

The news in was also shaped by the drug war in the Philippines, which was covered by two prize winning photographers; Australian Daniel Berehulak and Noel Celis, a photojournalist from the Philippines. This deeper knowledge of the situation is visible in his work. On a lighter note, photographers have captured the daily life of people from all over the world.

From the mock military coup festival in Spain, where people throw eggs and flour on the opposing team, captured by Antonio Gibotta, to the Trans Rugby team from Toronto that won the 1st prize for the sports category by Giovanni Capriotti. The goal of the World Press Photo Contest is to recognize photographers but also to provoke a reaction from the worldly audience.

It was awarded to a digital composite that was significantly reworked. According to the contest site, the World Press Photo [WPP] organises the leading international contest in visual journalism. However, the modifications made by Hansen fail to adhere to the acceptable journalism standards used by Reuters, Associated Press, Getty Images, National Press Photographer's Association, and other media outlets.

Importantly, the issue revolves around the version of the picture that won the award, not the original "raw" image.

Krawetz's analysis relied upon not having access to the original, which the jury for the prize did have, and who repeatedly backed their decision to award the photo the prize. Advertisement Understandably, to nip this in the bud, the World Press Photo invited two independent experts to forensically analyse the photograph.

The press release, posted up in the evening of 14 May, crows "digital photography experts confirm the integrity of Paul Hansen's image files".

I'd heard of it. The photo award was given early in the year, and there was a little bit of concern over the heavy-handed dodging and burning , but it sort of went away, then this blog started making some more serious accusations that in fact it was a composite of various photos and that's what exploded. We told him privately it is wrong, and why it is wrong, and he kept insisting that he was right.

I have no patience for that, he is impugning the reputation of a photojournalist and that's wrong. I mean it's clear that it's -- if I can use this term -- "Instagram-y". It's clear that it was touched up, and if you talk to the jury they say, yes, they know, they have the raw image. You can see that it's been locally and globally manipulated. The tone has been adjusted, and it looked dramatic to me, it looked like the drama had been done in post, but frankly it's not my business to tell the WPP what their standards are for photo contests.

At the time they were comfortable with it, and the reason they felt they had to respond was because the accusations went beyond "this has been retouched in post", to "this has been a composite of multiple photographs".

World Press Photo 2017: “You See It, You Know About It, Now What Are You Going To Go?”

So, you were specifically just looking at the composite issue? We were specifically analysing the claims made by Neal Krawetz. He claimed three things, two of which are just spectacularly wrong, and one of which is completely inconclusive. The first one was that he was claiming the image's metadata, specifically the XMP fields, showed that three files had been combined. That's simply wrong, and it's wrong because he doesn't understand how metadata works.

What happens is every time you open an image in raw and save it, it keeps tacking on what has been done to it, and the fact you have multiple XMP entries is not, as he claimed, evidence of compositing. It's simply evidence that you opened and closed the image several times. Second is he claimed the date in the metadata showed it was morning.

That's incorrect because he doesn't understand basic geometry. He made these lines in the image to connect shadows to objects -- that's correct -- and all of the shadows in the image, intersected a point. That's an analysis developed several years again to show not where the sun is, but whether the shadows in an image are consistent with a single light source.

It's a misrepresentation or misunderstanding of the geometry of this. You know, I don't mind people making mistakes. What I mind is what I call "doubling down on the dumb".

We told [Krawetz] privately it is wrong, and why it is wrong, and he kept insisting that he was right. Hence my irritation.

Can you find the sun this way? It's wrong. It's completely ambigious where the sun is.

That intersection point depends on where the photographer is relative to the sun. What the intersection is is the projection of the light into the image plane, and that, of course, can be anywhere. I can make it so it looks below the ground plane by just turning my back to the sun, but surely you're not going to claim that the light source is coming from below. We understand this in forensic science, and our job is to quantify those mistakes and be able to say something statistical and rigorous about the likelihood we made a mistake.

The third was this thing Neal developed called Error Level Analysis. It reveals whether parts of an image have been compressed compared to other parts. The problem is, first of all, this doesn't give you an answer, it just gives you an image, and this image is completely indecipherable. It incorrectly labels altered images as original and incorrectly labels original images as altered with the same likelihood.

He has this very handwaving notion of what this is supposed to do which I don't understand, and I've been doing this for a long time and I'm reasonably good at it. I don't think it's interesting or reliable, or quantifiable or quantitative, or particularly scientifically grounded.

When we do analyses, we know what our error rates are. We know the chance of making a mistake is X because there are always mistakes. Neal's mistake is he doesn't understand some basic facts about metadata and geometry, but that's not his biggest mistake. He has a level of certainty that is unwarranted, and that's dangerous in forensic science.

In the excitement of the blogosphere and Twitter people get crazy. Taking that level of uncertainty into account, how sure are you that you can you say this is a genuine photo? The good news is we have the raw image. This is stored in a proprietary format that is not impossible to reverse-engineer, but it's incredibly difficult to do. We had the metadata associated with that which told us what he did in raw and we could compare that with the final image and do a side-by-side comparison, and we could say this is clearly not a composite of multiple photographs taken at different times spliced together.

That is a patently false claim we can say with a very high degree of certainty. Everything after that is an editorial question. He clearly did global and local manipulation of colour and tone.

The jury knew what he did, they had the raw images, they compared it and said "you know what, we're comfortable with this". There is something interesting about this, it seems like a lot of these juries are moving towards this "Instagramming" of photos, this idea that there's this drama you can create with this heavy photo retouching in post.

Is that a good idea? I don't know, I think that's a question for photojournalists and people who do this for a living. But with a movement towards this Instagramming of photos, aren't competitions inviting this kind of controversy?An Irish Catholic wearing a gas mask stands in front of a wall with the graffiti we want peace , moments before teargas is thrown by British troops.
