World Press Photo 2015 Winners

The list of winners has been announced for one of photojournalism's most eagerly awaited global events. The top prize this year went to Danish photographer Mads Nissen for capturing an intimate moment between a young gay couple in Russia, where the LGBT community faces increasing legal and social discrimination. Some of the other highlights here include images of a young girl wounded in clashes between mourners and Istanbul police, perspective-bending from a drone high above California, and the creeping tragedy of the Ebola virus.
