GRAHAMSTOWN - PHOTOGRAPHY (article first published : 1999-06-27)

A collection of the world's best press photographs will be on display at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival. Running concurrently will be the World Press Retrospective exhibition, comprising a selection of all the winners since 1957 as well as other outstanding historical press images.

The World Press Photo, now in its 42nd year, is regarded as the most prominent annual international press photography competition. The exhibition presents an overview of the year's news as published in newspapers and magazines all over the world as well as unpublished material shown for the first time. Alongside headline news, current affairs and daily life, diverse aspects of photojournalism are reflected in the categories Sports, the Arts and Science and Technology.

This year's contest attracted 36 836 entries from 3 733 photographers from 116 countries. Thuys Dullart, Themba Hadebe, Jodie Bieber and Gideon Mendel were the four South African photographers to win acclaim

World Press Photo of the year went to Dayna Smith of the Washington Post, USA. Her black and white picture taken near Izbica, Kosovo, in November 1998, depicts a young woman in shock at the funeral of a KLA commander. The photograph also won the People in the News Singles category.
