The winners were chosen by an independent jury that reviewed more than 74,470 photographs entered by 4,315 photographers from 130 countries.
The contest rewards professional photographers for the best pictures - presented as singles or in stories - contributing to the past year of visual journalism.
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.
