Since 1955 the board of the World Press Photo Foundation, an independent platform for photo-journalism which has its headquarters in Amsterdam, has invited press photographers and photo-journalists from all over the world to take part in the World Press Photo competition.

About

An international jury, which is changed each year and this year consists of 17 members, judges the submitted entries that come from photographers, agencies, newspapers and magazines all over the world.
This year the competition received 97,912 entries from 5,692 professional photographers from 131 countries. The international jury awarded prizes across eight theme categories to 41 photographers from 17 countries.
It is not only an impressive demonstration of achievements in international photo-journalism but also a unique retrospective of events of worldwide importance and historical significance that have taken place during the previous year, covering such subjects as politics, culture, sports and nature.
The World Press Photo travelling exhibition attracts over three million people each year in 45 countries. This year, the world’s most prestigious annual exhibition of photojournalism visits Vienna for the 14th year running. The 13th edition in 2014 had over 23,000 visitors at WestLicht.
