Getty Awards: The compelling photographs that defined 2019

A woman screaming at police, a prime minister showing compassion and the Pope visiting Thailand.

These are the some of the award-winning images that encapsulated 2019.

After analysing hundreds of images taken across the Asia Pacific, judges have announced the top photographs that defined a moment or a movement last year.

Cassie Trotter, Getty Images’ head of editorial in the Asia-Pacific, said judges would usually look for two main skills when assessing an entry: ability and creativity.

“It’s a really tough competition,” Ms Trotter told The New Daily. 

The Best News Picture of the Year was awarded to Laurel Chor for her image of a woman screaming at police officers in Hong Kong during the pro-democracy protests.

 

In second place for Best News Picture of the Year was a photograph of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern embracing a Muslim worshipper after a right-wing extremist opened fire and killed more than 50 mosque-goers in Christchurch.

 

The third Best News Photograph of the Year was awarded to American journalist Paula Bronstein for her image of Pope Francis visiting young Catholics in Thailand.

  1. What amazes me is how a non-Leftard photograph won in this day and age! Wonders never cease.

  2. Unfortunately I was more than a little bit sick in my mouth at the second photograph. If I see that F**king woman hugging anyone again I shall scream . FFS what is going on. The world is so woke that anyone apart from her hugging is now taken to court as an abuser. What makes her so special she can hug will nilly? Jesus wept. I guess that is about all she can do so she does it. Useless person she is. God I hate this col.

  3. So one woman was opposing totalitarian communism while another imposes it while promoting hatred and fear.

    Plus the leader of a global pedophile ring.
