The 2014 World Press Contest photos are now available online. A link to the winning photographs appears below. Some depict tragedy, others hope, and all of them are notable and evocative.

An international jury of photographers and editors has announced the results of the 57th World Press Photo Contest. The shot chosen as Photo of the Year, by John Stanmeyer for National Geographic, depicts African migrants on the shore of Djibouti City at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture an inexpensive signal from neighboring Somalia. Other winning photos cover events from the fighting in Syria to South Africans’ reactions to the death of Nelson Mandela.
