Press photographs which won prizes in the World Press Photo 2011 competition are on display at the Złote Tarasy shopping mall in Warsaw until June 12.

A total of 5,691 photographers took part in this year’s World Press Photo competition, submitting 108,059 pictures. World Press Photo judges convened for two weeks and then gave out awards to 55 photographs in 10 categories. The winners include two photographers from Poland. The first, Filip Ćwik from the Napo Images agency, received third prize in the People and Events category for a reportage on the national mourning in Poland that followed the presidential airplane crash near Smolensk, Russia, last year. Tomasz Gudzowaty, in turn, won second prize in the Sports category for a reportage about amateur car races in Mexico.

An honorary award went to a series of photographs which Chilean coal miners took while trapped 700 meters underground for 69 days in a mine in San José, Chile.

The photograph of the year is a portrait of Bibi Aisha, a 18-year-old Afghan woman whose husband cut off her nose and ears. The photo was taken by South Africa’s Jodi Biber for Time magazine.

The exhibition at Złote Tarasy consists of 64 displays with 177 photographs and can be viewed during the mall’s opening hours: Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sun. 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
