The traditional blanket toss at the annual whaling feast in Point Hope. For the Iñupiat villagers nothing is more important than the bowhead whale. The calendar year revolves around hunting, fishing and gathering. (Photo by Katie Orlinsky/Getty Images)

Migrants are pushed back after crowding over police cordons to enter Macedonia at the Greek-Macedonian border. Thousands of migrants were stranded on the Greek side after Macedonia blocked access to citizens of countries that were not being fast-tracked for asylum in the European Union. Macedonia now allows only citizens from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. (Photo by Sergey Ponomarev/Getty Images)

“Border Security” by Kirsten Luce. Luce wins the David Laidler Memorial Award for her project. Captured at the southernmost point of Texas it examines the busiest corridor for human and drug trafficking in the US. A border patrol agent searches for migrants hiding in sand dunes in Kenedy County, Texas. The migrants were hiking to avoid the interior checkpoint in Sarita. This second “border” is where the majority of migrant deaths occur due to heatstroke, dehydration or exhaustion. (Photo by Kirsten Luce/Getty Images)

“Hijacked Life” by Jonathan Torgovnik. This project examines the complex issues faced by African migrants upon arrival in South Africa. This is the main and only entrance to one of the derelict “hijacked” buildings that houses African migrants, in Johannesburg’s inner city. Piles of rubbish have accumulated for years, almost completely blocking the entrance. The neglected building has suffered several fires, and does not have running water or electricity.
