Last year saw both triumph and tragedy — and photojournalists have documented it all. They covered some of the most powerful global events around the world, including the Lake Chad crisis in Nigeria, the migrant caravan which struggled to seek asylum in the United States, and the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
The annual World Press Photo Contest recognizes the incredible work of these photographers who travel the world, at times putting themselves in harm’s way, to capture important moments and global issues. On Wednesday, the contest announced its six nominees for “Photo of the Year.”
