The winning photos will be exhibited in the exhibition hall on the first floor.

The other winners

The " World Press Photo Story of the Year " award went to " Saving the Forests with Fire " by Matthew Abbott, Australia, a work made for National Geographic / Panos Pictures. At the center of the story, a rite of the Australian natives who strategically burn the earth in a practice known as "cold combustion": the fires move slowly, burn only the undergrowth and remove the accumulation of plant residues that can fuel larger fires . The Nawarddeken people of West Arnhem Land, Australia have been practicing this practice for tens of thousands of years and see fire as a tool to manage their 1.39 million hectare homeland. Warddeken rangers combine traditional knowledge with contemporary technologies to prevent fires, thereby decreasing CO2 for global warming.

Winner of the " World Press Photo long-term project award ", instead, " Amazonian dystopia " by Lalo de Almeida, Brazil, for Folha de São Paulo / Panos Pictures. It shows how the Amazon rainforest is severely threatened by deforestation, mining, infrastructure development and the exploitation of other natural resources. The "little green" policies of President Jair Bolsonaro also weigh heavily.
