A photograph of a skirmish between human rights activists and supporters of Chinese President XI Jinping during his visit to Prague in March 2016 has won the top prize in this year’s Czech Press Photo competition. The Photo of the Year was taken by photojournalist Michal Šula of Mafra Publishers. Mr Šula's photo is dominated by a figure covered in a Czech flag and a falling banner promoting human rights. During the Chinese president’s visit, organized groups of supporters clashed with activists supporting Tibet, the Dalai Lama and the late Václav Havel as well as opposing policies pursued by the current head of state.
