World Press Photo announces 2015 Multimedia award winners

Awards for the World Press Photo 2015 Multimedia contest have been announced in the short feature, long feature and interactive documentary categories.

Time magazine won first prize for short feature for “Behind the Video of Eric Garner’s Deadly Confrontation With New York Police.” The entry is a first-hand account by Garner’s friend who filmed the encounter and its aftermath.

First prize for long feature went to Tim Matsui and the MediaStorm team for “The Long Night,” an exploration of the crisis of minors entangled in the American sex trade, their families and authorities who try to help them.

The top prize for interactive documentary went to to “{The And}” a project that looks at the dynamics of modern relationships by bringing the viewer into the emotional space of real-life couples. It was produced by the Skin Deep in collaboration with Deep Focus and Topaz Adizes.

“This production stands out because you get moved by it and it is made with tools you can only find on the Net,” Marianne jury chair Lévy-Leblond said of the interactive documentary winner. “‘Scrolly-telling’ pieces have been very present the last couple of years. This winner is trying to find its own devices to tell its story.”

Second prize short feature was awarded to the New York Times for the video “Fighting Ebola Outbreak Street by Street.” This film follows ambulance nurse Gordon Kamara and his crew at the height of the Ebola outbreak in September 2014 in Monrovia, Liberia.

“Ebola was a huge story,” said jury member and Los Angeles Times photojournalist Barbara Davidson. “It was a big epidemic and for this filmmaker to make it smaller, for us to empathize with it, was very effective. That’s our role as journalists, to not only educate, but to call upon us to empathize with what we’re seeing and to hopefully bring about some change or awareness.”
