Workers preparing to mount the winning image of the World Press Photo 2016 competition, taken by Australian photojournalist Warren Richardson, during the setting up of the World Press Photo 2016 exhibition at official venue supporter, the National Museum of Singapore, yesterday. The photo, taken in August 2015, captured refugees passing a baby through a hole in a barbed wire fence to someone who had earlier crossed the border. Mr Richardson had followed the group that was trying to find ways to enter Hungary from Serbia. The exhibition for the prestigious competition, billed as the Oscars of photojournalism, will feature 145 winning shots from March 3 to 26. The show is presented by The Straits Times for the third year running and admission is free.
