World Press Photo 2014 (Zürich)

May 9, 2014 @ 11:00 AM - Jun 1, 2014 @ 7:00 PM

WORLD PRESS PHOTO 2014

The winners of the World Press Photo 14 contest have been announced!

American photographer John Stanmeyer won “World Press Photo of the Year 2013”. The awarded image shows African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture an inexpensive 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. Stanmeyer shot the picture for National Geographic on February 26, 2013.

The winning photograph along with the others selected will be presented by KEYSTONE at Sihlcity’s Folium in Zürich.
