From an assassination in Turkey to a backstage scene at a Toronto drag show, the winners of the 2017 World Press Photo contest were announced on Monday.

Lone activist Ieshia Evans stands her ground while offering her hands for arrest as she is charged by riot police during a protest against police brutality outside the Baton Rouge Police Department in Louisiana, U.S., on 9 July 2016. Evans, a 28-year-old Pennsylvania nurse and mother of one, traveled to Baton Rouge to protest against the shooting of Alton Sterling. Sterling was a 37-year-old black man and father of five, who was shot at close range by two white police officers. The shooting, captured on a multitude of cell phone videos, aggravated the unrest coursing through the United States in previous years over the use of excessive force by police, particularly against black men.

“The Silent Victims of a Forgotten War” — Paula Bronstein, USA, for Time Lightbox / Pulitzer Center For Crisis Reporting

A the Emergency hospital Najiba holds her nephew Shabir, age 2,  who was injured from a bomb blast which killed his sister in Kabul on March 29, 2016. Najiba had to stay with the children as their mother buried her daughter.
Despite billions of dollars spent by the international community to stabilize the country, Afghanistan has seen little improvement in terms of overall stability and human security. The situation on the ground for Afghans continues to be grave. The upsurge in violence has had devastating consequences for civilians, with suicide bombings and targeted attacks by the Taliban and other insurgents causing 70 percent of all civilian casualties.

“Cuba on the Edge of Change” — Tomas Munita, Chile, for The New York Times

A weathered barber shop in Old Havana, Cuba on Jan. 25, 2016. Cuba at times can feel like a nation abandoned. The aching disrepair of its cities, the untamed foliage of its countryside, the orphaned coastlines — a half-century of isolation has wrapped the country in decay. Yet few places in the world brim with as much life as Cuba, a contrast drawn sharper amid its faded grandeur.

“They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals” — Daniel Berehulak, Australia, for The New York Times

Six-year old Jimji cries in anguish as she screams "papa" before funeral parlor workers, move the body of her father, Jimboy Bolasa, from the wake at the start of the funeral to Navotas cemetery on Oct. 9, 2016 in Manila, Philippines. Unidentified men abducted Mr. Bolasa and a neighborhood friends one night. Less than an hour later, their beaten bodies, with signs of torture and gunshot wounds were dumped under a nearby bridge. The police claim the men were alleged drug dealers while their family members say they had only surrendered themselves. President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines began his anti-drug campaign when he took office on June 30. Since then, over 2,000 people had been slain at the hands of the police alone. Beyond those killed in official drug operations, the Philippine National Police have counted more than 3,500 unsolved homicides since July 1. The victims, suspected users and pushers, are not afforded any semblance of due process, and are killed just about everywhere imaginable.

“Rhino Wars” — Brent Stirton, South Africa, Getty Images for National Geographic Magazine

A Black Rhino Bull is seen dead, poached for its horns less than 8 hours earlier at Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve, South Africa. It is suspected that the killers came from a local community approximately 5 kilometers away, entering the park illegally, shooting the rhino at a water hole with a high-powered, silenced hunting rifle. An autopsy and postmortem carried out by members of the KZN Ezemvelo ranger team later revealed that the large calibre bullet went straight through this rhino, causing massive tissue damage. It was noted that he did not die immediately but ran a short distance, fell to his knees and a coup de grace shot was administered to the head from close range. Black Rhino are one of the most endangered rhino species. HluHluwe Umfolozi is one of the last repositories for these animals, with less than 3000 left in the wild today.
