Visit the World Press Photo Exhibition 2019 in Hanoi, Vietnam, showcasing the stories that matter with photography from the 62nd annual World Press Photo contest.
The 2019 exhibition features the World Press Photo of the Year, and for the first time, the World Press Photo Story of the Year. The winners were chosen by an independent jury that reviewed more than 78,801 photographs entered by 4,738 photographers from 129 countries.
In addition to the outside 2019 World Press Photo exhibition, organized by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Vietnam, there will also be several side events. These side events will be organized by Matca, which is a platform for young (press) photographers.
These side events include tours of the exhibition, a lecture about visual literacy, and a presentation on the history of the World Press photo and it’s legacy in Vietnam. For more information check Matca’s facebook.
About the World Press Photo Foundation
We are a global platform connecting professionals and audiences through trustworthy visual journalism and storytelling.
Founded in 1955 when a group of Dutch photographers organized a contest to share their work with an international audience, the competition has grown into the world’s most prestigious photography award and our mission has expanded.
We encourage diverse accounts of the world that present stories with different perspectives. We exhibit those stories to a worldwide audience, educate the profession and the public on their making, and encourage debate on their meaning.
The World Press Photo Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organisation, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We receive support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
