Mike SheilFreelance photographer Mike Sheil (pictured right) has achieved the top award in the Daily Life category of the World Press Photo Awards. Mike flew to Amsterdam to collect the award.

Working in Gabon and Benin, Mike investigated and photographed the people and places with particular reference to problems with child slavery. This World Press Photo award is regarded as the most prestigious international competition in professional press photography with winners chosen from over 49,000 entries.

Mike Sheil's work is used by Anti Slavery International, the worlds oldest established human rights organisation, in providing reports and information to groups such as UNICEF.

A staunch SLR user, Mike used Voigtlander rangefinders for the first time. The smaller, compact and unobtrusive system offered by the Bessa R and lenses produced stunning reportage images, and Mike is now a converted user.

The awarded image is shown below.
