The shortlist
The winner
11 September, by photographer Mike Segar, copyright Reuters. Eamonn McCabe says: "It was the stand-out shot amid a sea of fairly obvious stuff."
Bali bombing, by photographer Roberto Maldonado, copyright Katz picture agency. Eamonn McCabe says: "The picture drives home the contrast between the paradise image of the island and the enormity of the carnage."
Soham newsagents, by photographer Dan Chung, copyright Reuters. Eamonn McCabe says: "Dan Chung's picture used in The Guardian conveys the incongruity of such horror in such an apparently safe setting."
Argentinian handbags, by Carl Baldwin, based on a photograph copyright Reuters. Eamonn McCabe says: "The beauty of digital manipulation, and for me the strongest image of the World Cup."

Commonwealth games, by photographer Richard Lane, copyright Sportsbeat. Eamonn McCabe says: "Rain failed to dampen spirits... This picture from Richard Lane at Sportsbeat worked so well."
Queen Mother's funeral, by photographer Alastair Grant, copyright AP. Eamonn McCabe says: "It's not easy to find humour at a funeral, but there was some to be found at the Queen Mum's."
The Queen's tears, by photographer Jeremy Selwyn, copyright The Evening Standard. Eamonn McCabe says: "Lots of people had this, but Jeremy Selwyn's version in The Mail worked best."
John Major, by photographer Richard Baker, copyright IPG/Katz. Eamonn McCabe says: "The award for picture archaeology has to go to IPG/Katz for this cracker, which did the rounds."
