Australian wins World Press Photo award for migrants image

In this image released by World Press Photo shows the World Press Photo of the Year titled "Hope for a new Life" by photographer Warren Richardson. The picture also won a first prize in the Spot News singles category and shows a man passing a baby through the fence at the Serbia-Hungary border in Roszke, Hungary, Aug. 28, 2015.
A haunting image of migrants passing a baby underneath a razor-wire fence on the Serbian-Hungarian border won the prestigious World Press Photo award for 2015 on Thursday — even though it had never been published.

Australian freelance photographer Warren Richardson made the moonlit image on Aug. 28 and said he offered it to two news organizations, neither of which responded.
