This year’s winner was John Stanmeyer whose picture shows African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city. Migrants are raising their phones at night in order to capture a signal from neighboring Somalia — the only link to relatives left abroad. The city is a common stop-off point for migrants on their way from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, looking for a better life in Europe and the Middle East.
