Since then the contest has grown into the world’s most prestigious photography competition, reaching millions of people every year. The World Press Photo Foundation is a creative, independent, nonprofit organization, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. It receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon.
