The Wider Image: Makeshift shrines honour victims of British knife crime
Purple ribbons are seen tied to a tree and fence at a park near to where 17-year-old Jodie Chesney was stabbed to death in an attack with no obvious motive, in the Harold Hill area of London, Britain, April 29, 2019. Chesney was stabbed in an unprovoked attack while out with friends on March 1, 2019. Four males aged 16, 17, 19 and 20 have been charged with her murder which all four deny. In honour of her favourite colour, purple ribbons have been tied to a railing, alongside a message also written in purple: "Choose life, drop the knife! RIP Jodie."

Pictures of the Year: Caravans: the new face of migration
A Central American migrant, part of a caravan trying to reach the U.S., reacts as he waits to apply for asylum in Mexico at a checkpoint in Ciudad Hidalgo, Mexico, October 20, 2018. Reuters photographer Edgard Garrido: "A small Honduran child cried as the oppressive heat, uproar from the surrounding crowd and hours of waiting with his mother to enter Mexico legally became too much to bear. The image conveys the plight faced by many families traveling with children in tow, where fatigue, uncertainty, and the elements have an added level of drama. After traveling to the Mexico-Guatemala border, many of the migrants then had to wait three or four days on the bridge for Mexican authorities to let them cross the border. The wait is long and tedious, but hours after this picture was taken, the wailing child and mother were both let into Mexico. This scene, and others like it, hit home. A lack of opportunities, endemic violence and poverty prompted these families to abandon their homeland and embark on this arduous journey. The challenge in taking these pictures is getting to know the people, documenting this incredibly transcendental moment in their lives and conveying their humanity as truthfully as possible. I have been covering migrants since 2006 and followed this particular caravan of migrants for two weeks as they traveled through Guatemala to the Mexican border. As a photographer you have to make sure you put yourself in the right place and have the right light. Sometimes that is more obvious than others. In chaotic situations like this in the midst of hundreds of people, my experience and intuition guide me. I go searching for the light and underneath it inevitably there will be incredible moments to photograph." REUTERS/Edgard Garrido SEARCH "IMMIGRATION POY" FOR THIS STORY.

Supporters listen as U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Belgrade, Montana, U.S., November 3, 2018. Reuters photographer Carlos Barria: "As a White House photographer I'm always looking for a way to connect the President, Donald Trump, with a place. Before the mid-term elections Trump spent six days campaigning across the country, and at most of the rallies the visual elements were so similar that it was impossible to say whether we were in Florida or Alaska. In this case, though, the context was obvious. We arrived at a rally in Montana and I noticed a group of Native Americans wearing traditional headdresses behind the podium.

But even if you've seen a specific play many times, there is always the possibility that there will be something exciting or new.

A Picture and its Story: Photographers' best World Cup shots
Soccer Football - World Cup - Group A - Saudi Arabia vs Egypt - Volgograd Arena, Volgograd, Russia - June 25, 2018 Saudi Arabia's Salem Al-Dawsari celebrates scoring their second goal. Damir Sagolj: "Both teams lost their first two matches in the group stage and were already out of the tournament, so not many expected the match between Egypt and Saudi Arabia to really be a cracker. However, soon after kick off it became obvious that players were actually not demoralized at all, and chances started happening at both ends at the Volgograd Arena. I had my usual corner position that, against all logic and my wishes, didn't produce any excitement nor any serious goal celebrations in any of the matches I covered. That was until that June 25 when Saudi Arabia scored their injury time winning goal - the ball ended in the right corner and goalscorer Salem Al-Dawsari started running towards me. Luckily, I had the right camera with the right lens in my hands as a young player did what is every photographerÕs dream - a flip in front of him after the winning goal. It may not be the finals, nor was it any of the big teams or world famous players, but a flip is a flip. And it was a really nice one, and the only one during the World Cup - enough for me to be the highlight of the whole tournament."

Goran Tomasevic: "Both screaming in terror, a father and the young daughter he cradled in his arm fled through the rubble-strewn streets of Wadi Hajar, transformed in a flash into a battleground between Islamic State fighters and Iraqi special forces. They and their neighbours - some wearing rubber sandals, some barefoot - were running from an IS counter-attack in this part of Mosul, dodging gunfire as the militants closed in. When they reached the special forces lines, males were ordered to lift their shirts to prove they weren't suicide bombers. Some had to take off their clothes or show their belts, though not those carrying children. The father was so beside himself, so panicked.

A Picture and its Story: The battle for Mosul: urban warfare and civilian exodus
A view of a part of western Mosul, Iraq, May 29, 2017. Alkis Konstantinidis: "It was the second day of my assignment in Mosul and we were driving to join the Iraqi Federal Police forces at their frontline positions. The closer we got to our destination, the more obvious was the impact of the constant warfare. The cityscape was apocalyptic: demolished buildings, burnt cars tipped onto their sides, twisted masses of steel. We reached the frontline on what seemed a quiet day. But even if things appear calm, you have to be on alert about your surroundings. While moving fast from position to position, taking cover behind debris, I noticed a yellow car lying destroyed in the middle of the road ahead of us. I took a few wide-angle shots, which worked best as I was able to get the perspective of the street and the sweeping scale of the destruction. Not a single element of my frame was untouched by the battle. Later that day, I tried to imagine what this street - whose name I couldn't find out as no signs were left standing - would have looked like on a "normal" day some years ago. It appeared to be a market street; people would have crossed it in a hurry, darting between traffic. The mosque in the background would have called the faithful to prayer and it would have been full of different noises: car honks, shop-owners shouting to attract customers, music playing in coffee shops full of people. These everyday sounds had now been replaced by the heavy crump of mortars, artillery, helicopters and the clatter of gun battles. And the memory of a normal day seemed so distant."

LESBOS, Greece
Yearend 2015: A Picture and Its Story
A Syrian refugee holding a baby swims towards the Greek island of Lesbos, September 12, 2015. Alkis Konstantinidis: Another inflatable boat packed with dozens of migrants and refugees heading towards the shore. That’s what I noticed in the distance. The sea was calm and they were cheering on the dinghy. Suddenly, some 200 metres away, the rear of the boat deflated for no obvious reason, and people started falling into the sea. Screams replaced cheers as they frantically tried to stay afloat on life tubes, or by clinging on to the boat. Those who could swim tried to help those who couldn’t. As this dramatic scene unfolded and people drifted away from each other, the biggest challenge was to capture as many of the different scenes as I could. There were people falling overboard; two men trying to keep their friend afloat; a man still on the boat lifting his child in the air; another man, nearing collapse from exhaustion, swimming towards the shore; volunteers rushing towards the boat. In this hectic moment, one man, tense and yelling really loudly, caught my eye so I shot some frames. Later, as he tried to catch his breath on the beach, I asked him where he was from. “Syria," he told me before heading towards a volunteer holding a baby. The distance of the shot hadn’t allowed me to see the details of the picture clearly. It was only when I began editing that I could make out the tiny head of a baby in a life tube, and the screaming man trying to keep himself and the baby above water. Everything I cover, from riots to politics and sports, trains me to be on the alert and try to get the best from what I am shooting. I learned from this experience that disaster can occur even in what appears to be the calmest of situations. Looking back, the most memorable moment was when I opened the picture and saw the baby, who looked fast asleep as if in a cradle - dreaming or listening to a lullaby.

Dmitry Kibkalo, founder of the 'Mosigra' board game retailer, speaks during an interview at the company's store in Moscow, Russia, October 22, 2015. Board games become a trend in Russia, gathering friends around playing tables and bringing fresh ideas to the domestic industry. New stores with colourful boxes on shelves open their doors for amateurs, as well as the fan-cafes where everyone can immerse in a cardboard reality. Kibkalo head of 'Mosigra' board-games' company which plays a substantial role on this market said the development is obvious. Picture taken October 22, 2015. REUTERS/Sergei Karpukhin

Umit Bektas: The man in the picture was gesturing to all of us on the other side of the barbed wire, asking the soldiers, officials and media for help. He was far from the only one: countless people were begging to be let across the border. These refugees had rushed from the town of Tel Abiad because they were expecting fighting between Isis and Kurdish forces.
“Take us in, we’re dying here,” I heard someone say.
The baby girl in his arms looked terrified. She was so young but there was something in her eyes…  it seemed like she knew what was going on. She wasn’t crying, even though she was hanging on to the barbed wire, also in spite of the heat, the shouting and chaos around her. There she was with her big eyes, looking out. It appeared to me that was in shock.
A few minutes after I took this photo the Turkish officials and military allowed these people to cross the border into Turkey. They arrived dehydrated, desperate to drink water and cool down.
There was a complete lack of facilities: no water, no toilets, no shade, no buildings at all. When I captured this image it was midday and the heat was intense, at more than 30 degrees Celsius. NGOs and soldiers had started to throw bottles of water across but it was obvious that there wasn’t enough to go round.
There are tens of thousands of children who are suffering like the girl in this image - she is just one of them.

Staff members stand in a meeting room at Lehman Brothers offices in the financial district of Canary Wharf in London in this September 11, 2008 file photo.

Kevin Coombs: This is a very simple story. This photo was shot from the fourth floor newsroom at our offices in Canary Wharf, the heart of London's financial district. I was working on the pictures desk when I noticed three or four journalists looking out of the window. This is a busy newsroom and people don't hang around staring out the window so I immediately grabbed my camera and ran across to see what was happening and spotted the Lehman employees.

I knew Lehman was struggling and I knew that was the Lehman Brothers building. As I was shooting the picture I was really thinking about how best to stop the reflections as I was shooting through thick glass. The people lining up is what struck me first but I did not realise the significance of it until I walked back over to the desk and checked our systems which showed the Lehman share price dipping. It became obvious that this was a crisis meeting and at that point I knew this was an important picture.

The picture has been used over and over to illustrate the beginning of the global financial crash. For me to shoot one of my most used pictures from our newsroom window is quite bizarre, but it proves you only see good pictures when you look around and have your camera ready at all times.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Two women wearing nun outfits drink beer while watching the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier curling championships in Kamloops, British Columbia in this March 8, 2014 file photo.

Although some people might conclude that a curling event could produce a dull atmosphere, it is actually far from it. Some of the most energetic and loyal fans are committed to showing their colours at tournaments around the world.
There was a lull in the games that were being held on this day and I remember spotting these nuns sitting in their seats earlier. Although them just sitting there didn't produce a picture, I kept my eye on them for the entire match. As soon as I spotted them with beer in their hands, I slowly turned my camera towards them and waited for them to take a drink.
One of the challenges of shooting this image was to not have everyone notice me taking the photo. I had a longer lens on and was right in the middle of the rink. I slowly turned my lens, not to make my intentions too obvious, and waited until they drank from their beers together. - Ben Nelms REUTERS/Ben Nelms/Files (CANADA - Tags: SPORT CURLING SOCIETY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

BJP's Amit Shah speaks during a news conference in the northern Indian city of Lucknow
Amit Shah, a leader of India's main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), speaks during a news conference in the northern Indian city of Lucknow March 1, 2014. Shah is charged with three counts of murder. He is also a key election campaign manager and close aide of Narendra Modi, the frontrunner to become India's next prime minister. To supporters, his proven talent in winning elections makes him the obvious choice to run Modi's campaign in Uttar Pradesh, a swing state that holds the key to national power. But for critics, Modi's ties to Shah are proof that there is a dark side to the Hindu nationalist leader now storming ahead in opinion polls on promises to sweep away corruption and economic mismanagement.
