World Press Photo of the Year Award

Every year World Press Photo invites press photographers and photojournalists throughout the world to participate in the World Press Photo Contest.

All entries will be judged for their news value and for the creative skills of the photographer.

For stories and portfolios the editing of the entered material will also be taken into account.

In each category both the photographer of the best single picture and the photographer of the best picture story/portfolio will receive a Golden Eye Award, a cash prize of EUR 1,500, and an invitation to Amsterdam to attend the awards ceremony in April (including one return flight ticket and hotel accommodation).

Winners of second and third prizes and honorable mentions will receive the foundation's Golden Eye Award and a diploma.

Photographers who have not won prizes, but whose work has been selected for the yearbook and/or exhibition, will receive a certificate recognizing their outstanding skill and a copy of the yearbook.
