The otherworldly sight of African migrants, lit only by the moon and the light of their cellphones, held aloft, trying to grab signals from nearby Somalia to call their relatives. The terror of a mall turned battleground after a brazen attack in Kenya. A severely malnourished child crying out from her mother’s burqa at an Afghan hospital. The best photojournalists have a way of capturing a whole of a complex story in a single frame and, with their artistry, make it live in our memory long after news has marched on. News pictures too good to forget from last year have been honored and are being displayed in the Pictures of the Year 2013 exhibition that has become an anticipated tradition at the Newseum. The show opens Friday for a five-month run through Sept. 1.

Years the Newseum has partnered with Pictures of the Year International to display the best of their annual contest, which is the oldest photojournalism contest in the world. The partnership began in 2011 when the Newseum displayed winners from the 2010 Pictures of the Year.
