World Press Photo 2020

World Press Photo

The Exhibition

Since 1955 the World Press Photo Contest has recognized professional photographers for the best pictures contributing to the past year of visual journalism. On 16 April 2020, we announced the winners of the 63rd edition of the annual Photo Contest and 10th Digital Storytelling Contest.

The winners were chosen by an independent jury that reviewed more than 73,996 photographs entered by 4,282 photographers from 125 countries.

The Foundation

The World Press Photo Foundation believes in the power of showing and the importance of seeing high-quality visual stories.

It all began in 1955 when a group of Dutch photographers organized an international contest (“World Press Photo”) to expose their work to a global audience.

For six decades, the World Press Photo Foundation has been working from its home in Amsterdam as an independent, nonprofit organization. In that time, the world has changed continuously, and new developments in the media and technology have transformed journalism and storytelling. Our mission has expanded, and we draw on our experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world through this challenging and exciting landscape.
