Photo Gallery UNICEF's Photos of the Year

Every year UNICEF holds a competition for photos that illustrate the living situations of children in special ways. The winner for 2008 is the 21-year-old Belgian photographer Alice Smeets, whose picture shows a young girl living in a slum in Port au Prince -- without shoes, without money, but full of pride.
