With 2018 coming to a close, Reuters has curated a selection of the best images from all the news, events, and stories they covered over the course of the year.
How are the most powerful images of the year selected? Balance between photographic impact and journalistic relevance is critical, as well as emotional impact and socio-political or cultural relevance. With nearly 750,000 Reuters photographs in a year to choose from, the process is complex and ongoing throughout the year.
