This month, there's the chance to see 200 award-winning images capturing the most powerful news events of 1997. The annual World Press Photo Competition serves as a platform for international photo-journalism, and provides a whistle-stop tour of the world, documenting all major news events, including Tony Blair's election campaign and Dolly, the first cloned sheep.

Selected from more than 36,000 photographs, an image by Hocine, featuring a grief-stricken Algerian woman amid the aftermath of the massacre in Bentalba, wins the accolade of "World Press Photo of the Year 1997".
