The jury of the 59th annual World Press Photo Contest has selected an image by Australian photographer Warren Richardson as the World Press Photo of the Year 2015. The picture titled “Hope for a New Life” captures the drama of one crossing on the Serbo-Hungarian border, as more than a million people made their way to Europe’s shores in 2015  nearly half of them fleeing Syria’s brutal civil war.
