World Press Photo contest is the world’s leading contest for professional press photographers, photojournalists and documentary photographers. Since 1955 the World Press Photo Contest has rewarded professional photographers for the best pictures - presented as singles or stories in eight categories (Contemporary Issues, General News, Environment, Nature, Long-Term Projects, Portraits, Spot News, and Sports) - contributing to the past year of visual journalism.
In the last three years, the World Press Photo Foundation received around 75,000 images each year from at least 125 countries. Though the numbers have changed considerably over the years, its purpose is to honor the best visual journalism and share these stories with a global audience.
The mission of World Press Photo is to connect the world to the stories that matter, at the same time, embraces accuracy, transparency and diversity.
“We are very excited to show this Best of Three Exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City. The purpose of the World Press Photo exhibitions is to make people stop, feel, think and act and engage with a worldwide audience. We hope all visitors enjoy all these visual stories: the stories that matter”, Suzan van den Berg, Exhibitions Coordinator for World Press Photo shared./.
