World Press Photo Announce Nominees from Contest


The World Press Photo Foundation is delighted to announce the nominees in each category of the 61st annual Photo Contest and the 8th annual Digital Storytelling Contest.

This new announcement process includes, for the first time, naming the six nominees for the World Press Photo of the Year. The winner of the World Press Photo of the Year, and the winners in all categories, will be announced at the Awards Show in Amsterdam on 12 April.

Our mission as a foundation it to connect the world to the stories that matter. We believe the best visual journalism is not of something; it is about something. It should matter to the people to whom it speaks. The foundation continues to play the role it began with in 1955 because the juries in our contests nominate the best photographers and producers.

The great work you can see in this 2018 edition of our contests helps us fulfil our purpose as a global platform connecting professionals and audiences through trustworthy visual journalism and storytelling.
