The annual World Press Photo contest offers an overview of how press photographers tackle their work worldwide and how the press gives viewers the news, bringing together pictures from all parts of the globe to reflect trends and developments in photojournalism.
The World Press Photo of the Year Award carries a cash prize of EUR 10,000, as well as expenses to travel for the Awards Days.
The winner also receives one of Canon's latest professional digital cameras.
