The Sony World Photography Awards announced the finalists for 2015. More than 173,444 people from 171 countries submitted applications. Photographer of the Year was named as Getty Images’ John Moore. He will receive a $25,000 award for covering the Ebola epidemic in Africa.

“John Moore’s photographs of this crisis show the full the brutality of people’s daily lives torn apart by this invisible enemy. However, it is his spirit in the face of such horror that garners praise. His images are intimate and respectful, moving us with their bravery and journalistic integrity. It is a fine and difficult line between images that exploit such a situation, and those that convey the same with heart, compassion and understanding, which this photographer has achieved with unerring skill.
