In 1955 a group of Dutch photographers organized an international contest (“World Press Photo”) to expose their work to a global audience.
Since then the contest has grown into the world’s most prestigious photography competition, and through our successful worldwide exhibition program, presents the winning stories to millions of people.
This year 4,282 photographers from 125 countries entered 73,996 photographs to the contest. These visual stories are judged in terms of their accurate, fair, and compelling insights about our world.
All entrants accept the code of ethics, and all winning pictures go through a rigorous verification process, ensuring they can be trusted to show the scene witnessed by the photographer.
The contest is judged by a jury comprising leading photography professionals, and its membership of the jury changes every year. They are independent of the World Press Photo Foundation, and it is the jury alone that chooses the winning pictures and stories that matter.
