In the Nature section, Kacper Kowalski won the second prize for his photograph showing waste resulting from copper mining. Maciej Nabdralik won the second prize in Contemporary Issues for a photograph of Nicolette, a girl living in an orphanage.

US photographer John Stanmeyer won the main prize in the World Pres Photo contest this year. His work entitled “Signal” shows migrants on the shore of Djibouti as they raise their phones to be able to capture an inexpensive phone signal from Somalia.
