Photographs that received prizes in the World Press Photo 2007 competition are on display at Warsaw's Palace of Culture and Science from May 31 to June 24.

The results of the most prestigious competition for photojournalists around the world were announced in Amsterdam Feb. 8. The jury of the 51st World Press Photo competition handed out prizes to 59 photographers from 23 countries in 10 categories. This year's competition saw a record number of entries: 5,019 photographers from 125 countries submitted a total of 80,536 photos, 80 percent of which were sent in via email.

The first prize for the Photo of the Year 2007 went to Tim Hetherington for a picture he took last September for Vanity Fair magazine. It shows an American soldier resting in a bunker in eastern Afghanistan. The Korengal Valley, where the soldier's battalion was stationed, has been the scene of fierce battles with the Taliban. Hetherington's photo is part of a reportage that also won second prize in the General News Stories category.

Two awards went to Polish photographers. Rafał Milach won first prize in the Arts and Entertainment Stories category, while duo Tomasz Gudzowaty and Judit Berekai received third prize in the Sports Action Singles category.
