15 Of The World’s Best News Photos Of 2015

Published 4 years ago

It is a holiday season for all those who enjoy powerful photography, as it is the time when we look back and check the best photos of last year.
After last year scandals when the winner was stripped of his title and 20% of finalists were disqualified, the World Press Photo awards are coming back with the strong showcase for 2015.

The last thing that is missing is your vote so don’t keep us waiting!

And if all these photos got your inner photographer going, don’t let the lack of fancy camera stop you. You can still compete in iPhone Photography Awards.
