Stunner. The winning photo in Turkey this year was of a battered and bloody Israeli soldier aboard the Mavi Marmara.

It’s a winner!


YNet News reported:

Picture of bleeding Navy commando assaulted aboard Marmara wins Turkish photojournalism award; news website uses difficult image to create puzzle for readers

Photojournalism award, Turkish-style: The picture of a bleeding IDF soldier aboard the Marmara won Turkey’s 2010 Photo of the Year Award in the News category; the contest was held by the Turkish photojournalism association.

Nine people were killed onboard the Gaza-bound Turkish ship after IDF troops who raided it encountered violent resistance by “peace activists” armed with an assortment of weapons.

One of Turkey’s largest websites, Milliyet, used the difficult image to create a puzzle for its readers.

The photograph shows a beaten up IDF soldier with his face and head bloodied while three Marmara passengers grab him and twisting his arm.

The photo was hid from authorities by the photographer who smuggled them out of Israel.
