World Press Photo 2022
Winners & Exhibitions Announced

Guillaume Herbaut, Ukraine Crisis, Agence VU’ / 2022 Photo Contest, Europe, Long-Term Projects

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.

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