Theme(s): Visual Journalism
Eligibility: The photo contest is open to professional photographers and photojournalists, and entry coordinators.
Entry: Free
Prize: Exhibition
The annual photo contest rewards photographers for the best single exposure pictures contributing to the past year of visual journalism.

Whether entered as singles or stories, these pictures are judged in terms of their accurate, fair, and visually compelling insights about our world.

The contest is organized into categories, and judged by a jury comprising leading photojournalism professionals. The membership of the jury changes every year, and is led by a chair and supported by two secretaries who implement the rigorous judging procedures. The jury, chair, and secretaries are independent of the World Press Photo Foundation. The staff, board, and partners of the World Press Photo Foundation cannot direct the jury's decisions.

Awards
The prize-winning photographs are assembled into an exhibition that travels to 45 countries and is seen by more than 4 million people each year. The winning pictures are also published in the yearbook, which is available in multiple languages, and can be purchased in our store.

The winners of The World Press Photo of the Year and The World Press Photo Story of the Year awards will receive 10,000 each. This means all contest winners will share in prizes totaling more than 130,000 in value.

All nominees are brought to Amsterdam in April to receive their prize at the annual Awards Show. This takes place just before the World Press Photo Festival, an event to which winners are invited, featuring photographer presentations, screenings and talks. Read more about the prizes.
