This picture by Italian photographer Pietro Masturzo won Photo of the Year in the World Press Photo of the Year 2009 contest, it was announced by the organisers on 12 February 2010 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It shows women in Tehran, Iran, shouting from a rooftop in protest against the regime on 24 June 2009.
