It’s a good year for the World Press Photo Multimedia contest. After two initial contests where it struggled to find its feet, this year’s crop of winners are both better produced and have a clearer sense of belonging to the prestigious international competition for photojournalists. This year there were three categories: online short, online feature and the interactive documentary.

The winner of the short was Pep Bonet from Noor Images and the online feature Stephanie Sinclair and Jessica Dimmock from VII Photo Agency. Both contain striking still images woven together with reasonable video. The emphasis is clearly on the photography rather than the video.
