The World Press Photo video library

A collection created to inspire and designed to share.

Since 2006, World Press Photo has been recording interviews with photographers, lectures by leading photographers, and presentations from industry experts to share with our audience online. These include:


  • Photographer voices: Prizewinners speak about the story behind their work
  • Jury perspectives: Members of the photo and multimedia contest juries discuss the judging process and the winners for the year
  • Masterclass reflections: Masters and participants from the Joop Swart Masterclass talk about their experience
  • Talks: Watch lectures and presentations delivered during World Press Photo events
  • Foundation insights: Videos about who we are and what we do, including a look into our exhibitions, contest judgings, productions with the year winner and other highlights
  • And more: The video library will continue to grow as we add more productions from the past and create new ones in the future
