World Press Photo of the Year: 1980…

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

Mike Wells, United Kingdom… Karamoja district, Uganda, April 1980… Starving boy & a missionary. About the image, Wells felt indignant that the same publication that sat on his picture for five months without publishing it, while people were dying, entered it into a competition. He was embarrassed to win as he never entered the competition himself & was against winning prizes with pictures of people starving to death.
