The prestigious World Press Photo organisation, based in the Netherlands, has found itself caught in a storm over the authenticity of images that won awards in the 2015 competition. The WWPh is not an insignificant body - it has been a leading voice in photojournalism since its founding in 1955. For many, winning one of the several awards in various categories is like getting a photojournalistic benediction. So when the very basics of photojournalistic and documentary photography ethics appear to have been discarded by the organisation, practitioners around the world are up in arms.
