Each year, The World Press Photo selects the best photojournalism images produced over the previous 12 months. WPP awards have been running since 1955. This year, 41 photographers from 21 nationalities were awarded in eight categories. The refugee crisis in Europe, the war in Syria, the Paris attacks, the devastating earthquake in Nepal and the clashes in the US set off by police shootings dominated the entries.

The images were selected out of 82,912 images submitted to eight different categories—including Sports, Portraits and Wildlife—in the 58th annual World Press Photo contest.
