The winners of the fourth annual World Press Photo Multimedia competition were announced in Amsterdam.

Emin Özmen and Barış Koca's Witnessing Gezi won first prize in the Long Feature category.

Other prize winners in this category included Brent McDonald and Stephen Maing's behind the scenes look at the last month of Christine Quinn's New York mayoral bid for The New York Times, and MediaStorm's feature -- with Director of Photography Rick Gershon -- on early onset dementia.

Marco Casino's Staff Riding picked up first prize in the Short Feature category. The work looks at the often dangerous practice of train surfing in South Africa. Second prize went to Lela Ahmadzai's poignant look at the Kandahar massacre, and third prize to David Airob and David Ramos' work on an early form of soccer.

In the interactive documentary category -- namely those documentaries accessible on the web, and actively navigated through by viewers -- Katerina Cizek's A Short History of the High Rise came first. While Ewen MacAskill and Gabriel Dance's look at The Guardian's investigative stories based on leaked top-secret National Security Agency documents came second, and Elaine McMillion Sheldon's piece on a shrinking West Virginia community came in third place.
