Greenpeace's World Press Photo winners gallery

Paul Hilton's 'Shark Fin' has taken out a prize at the 2012 World Press Photo competition, the most prestigious photojournalism contest in the world. In fact it's a hat-trick, with three awards being picked up by photographers on Greenpeace assignments, in three consecutive years. Take a look at these winning photos. It's a powerful set of images that inspire and move people to take action.

Many congratulations to contributing photographer Paul Hilton on his World Press Photo 2012 3rd prize in Nature win for 'Shark Fin'. This powerful picture of a shark being pulled onto a Taiwanese longliner, in the Central Pacific Ocean, was taken by Paul while he was on board our ship, the Esperanza in September 2011. © Paul Hilton
