International

World Press Photo recognizes the best visual journalism of the year, awarding the images and stories of photographers in eight categories. This year we announce the 45 participants from 28 countries. The World Press Photo Foundation is pleased to announce the 2021 Photo Contest winners. Some 2021 Contests winners presented their work during the online World Press Photo Festival 2021. The three day program included presentations by contest winners sharing the background to their award-winning stories, talks with jury members taking you through the judging process, discussions around the theme of press freedom, and digital spaces for visual storytelling professionals to discuss pressing questions and topics.

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.

Our purpose is to connect the world to the stories that matter.
