CONFLICT, TERRORISM, DOMESTIC violence, death, natural wonders and the power of sport are just some of the themes portrayed spectacularly in the winning images of the World Press Photo contest 2013.

Split into the nine themed categories, including contemporary issues, observed portraits, staged portraits, daily life, sports action, general news, sports feature, nature and spot news, the pictures reflect global life as it was in 2013.

Here are 18 of the best, showing everything from the strength of cancer patients to the devastation of the Syrian war.

The overall winner, an image of African migrants searching for phone signal, can be seen here. And check out more entries on the World Press Photo Contest’s website.
