Photographer Robert Vos of the Dutch ANP news agency has won the Zilveren Camera 2008 (Silver Camera 2008).

Amsterdam—He received the award for his picture of swimmer Maarten van der Weijden immediately after his victory on the men's 10-kilometre open water marathon at the Beijing Olympics.

In the picture, Van der Weijden is being enthusiastically embraced by fellow swimmer Pieter van den Hoogenband. The jury spoke of a journalistically perfect photograph telling a story people would still be talking about in 25 years.
