The winners of the 6th annual All About Photo Awards have been announced – with the top pictures showing the power for pictures to shock and make a point. From a dead body in a hospital, to an Indian porter carrying an impossibly huge load on his head - the five prize-winning images all have powerful stories to go with their provoking pictures.
The first prize went to British photographer Tom Price, with a shot taken from a project that aimed to show the isolation and the struggle of migrant workers in thought provoking way. He wins a cash prize of $5,000.
The other photographers, from Indonesia, Chile, Ireland and Spain, shared the remaining $5,000 of prizes in this contest organized by AAP.
The full gallery, including those winning merit awards, can be seen on the AAP website.
