World Press Photo


The World Press Photo Foundation is a major force in developing and promoting the work of visual journalists, with a range of activities and initiatives that span the globe.

In 1955 a group of Dutch photographers organised a contest to expose their work to international colleagues, and thus was the World Press Photo Foundation started. That annual contest has since grown into one of the most prestigious awards in photojournalism and multimedia storytelling, and the exhibition it produces is seen by four million people worldwide each year.
