World Press Photo 14 is a photo exhibition that inspires the understanding of the world through creative and quality photojournalism.
This year, the exhibition contains over 140 photographs, including those captured during recent or ongoing conflicts. The latter builds upon the Museum’s display of post-Cold War conflict and underlines how these events continue to shape the world.
This exhibition is developed and circulated by World Press Photo and is presented at the Canadian War Museum in partnership with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon.

African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to capture an inexpensive signal from neighboring Somalia — a tenuous link to relatives abroad. Djibouti is a common stop-off point for migrants in transit from such countries as Somalia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, seeking a better life in Europe and the Middle East.
