Most of this year’s submissions were in color, however, two of the top five are in black and white. It is also worth noting that just 11 women were among the 48 winners, yet they finished first and second. Many of the photographs submitted to this year’s competition focused on horrific events in the globe, such as battles in Ukraine and the Middle East, but there were also an astounding number of images revealing how dirty the world is and how urgently it need our care. This final pick includes both strong and sorrowful photographs, as well as more lighthearted ones. Overall, this year’s selection focuses on outstanding aesthetics and storytelling.

So heartbreaking on so many levels. Imagine being a child and instead of playing, you’re working your a*s off and sleeping on a bed of trash, only to repeat the process the next day.

Get out; we’re learning! This photograph was taken in a school in Zanzibar where there are no desks, chairs, or school supplies. All these small girls have is a notebook and their memories. They receive knowledge from a single master. Everyone has the potential to change the world.

Makoko, the world’s largest floating slum with over 300,000 residents, has serious issues such as a lack of infrastructure and basic amenities. Makoko’s stilt houses are located in Lagos, Africa’s largest economic hub, and function as both residences and sewage systems for the city’s 20 million residents. Poverty, poor education, and healthcare inequities are major issues in the community, which are exacerbated by complex land tenure and official recognition. Despite these challenges, Makoko people demonstrate incredible solidarity, working together to not just survive but prosper in their difficult environment, cultivating a strong sense of belonging.
