The images on this page are taken from the World Press Photo of the Year 2015 con­test. The World Press Photo of the Year con­test first took place in 1955, when mem­bers of the Dutch Pho­to­jour­nal­ists’ Union turned their na­tional com­pe­ti­tion into an in­ter­na­tional one. It has been held al­most ev­ery year since then, and now at­tracts over 5,000 par­tic­i­pants an­nu­ally.

An ex­hi­bi­tion of prize-win­ning images opens in Am­s­ter­dam on April 18, be­fore tour­ing some 100 cities in 45 coun­tries. If you can’t make it to the ex­hi­bi­tion, the win­ning en­tries are also pub­lished in a year­book, avail­able world­wide and trans­lated into seven lan­guages. To see all the win­ning images from this year plus the pre­vi­ous four con­tests, and learn more about the com­pe­ti­tion and World Press Photo’s work, visit www.world­pressphoto.org/awards/2015
