This event has ended.

Each year, World Press Photo invites photographers throughout the world to participate in the World Press Photo Contest, the premier international competition in photojournalism, with prize winning work going on to tour across 100 cities across the world. In 2014, 5,754 photographers from 132 countries submitted 98,671 entries. This year the grand prize has been awarded to John Stanmeyer for “Djibouti City, Djibouti”, depicting African migrants on the shore of Djibouti City at night raising their phones in an attempt to catch cheap yet weak signal from neighboring Somalia, revealing an earnest pursuit of communication with relatives left in surrounding counties.
