The World Press Photo Exhibition
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.
For six decades, the World Press Photo Foundation has been working from its home in Amsterdam as a creative, independent, nonprofit organization. In that time, the world has changed continuously, and new developments in the media and technology have transformed journalism and storytelling. Their mission has expanded, and they draw on our experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world through this challenging and exciting landscape.
Into the future
The 21st century has seen further restructuring of the World Press Photo Foundation as it adapts to a changing world. The foundation now finds itself in the position where it not only runs the world’s most prestigious international contest for photojournalism and digital storytelling productions, and administers the world’s largest annual photo exhibition, it also offers a wide-ranging portfolio of educational, research, and communications activities designed to develop and support visual journalism and storytelling.
