World Press Photo
We are presenting the results of the foundation’s annual photo contest,
showcasing the best photojournalism and documentary photography of the last year.
Since 1955, the World Press Photo Contest has grown into one of the world’s
most prestigious competitions and presents to millions of people the stories that matter.
The 2022 World Press Photo Contest works with six worldwide regions – Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central America, South America, and Southeast Asia and Oceania. Each region has four format-based categories: Singles, Stories, Long-Term Projects, and Open Format. These categories welcome entries that document news moments, events and aftermaths, as well as social, political and environmental issues or solutions.
For its 65th edition, 24 winners were chosen out of 4,066 entrants with 64,823 photographs from 130 different countries.
