World Press Photo Academy educates, enables and connects photojournalists so that they may share their stories with the world.
Joop Swart Masterclass brings new generations of photojournalists together with established leaders, and for more than 20 years we’ve been holding workshops in regions where access to training is limited. World Press Photo events provide a platform for professionals to network, give talks and share their views.
Our publishing program enables us to share inspiring photojournalism with professionals and the wider public alike. The winning images from our annual photo contest are showcased in a best-selling yearbook, and a growing number of other publications share unseen stories from around the world, as told by local voices.
As visual journalism changes, we are developing ways to offer direct incentives to photographers, such as grants designed to create new opportunities for work.
