2014 World Press Photo of the Year

With 90,000 entries from 132 countries, World Press Photo of the Year 2014 came from American photographer John Stanmeyer. Shown above, shot for National Geographic, his photo captures African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture network signal from neighboring Somalia — a tenuous link to relatives abroad.
Djibouti is a common stop-off point for migrants in transit from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, seeking a better life in Europe and the Middle East. The competition included nine themed categories such as Sports News, Nature, General News, and Observed Portraits.
