Mauricio Lima took top honors in Pictures of the Year Latin America, which highlights work done around the world by photographers from Latin America.
Mauricio Lima of Brazil has been named Photographer of the Year in the third Pictures of the Year Latin America contest. Daniele Volpe of Guatemala was awarded second place and Alejandro Cegarra of Venezuela took third in the same category, while Daniel Rodriguez of Portugal was awarded an honorable mention.

Days before the frenzied jubilation at the capture and death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, Mauricio Lima had been patiently — and persistently — working the streets of Surt. Though overseas interest had waned in recent days, his attention did not. He was close up and alongside fighters as they pursued their elusive target, and his images are suffused with a nuanced touch because of that.
