World Press Photo organizes visual storytelling contest [Worldwide]

Posted on Dec 8, 2021 in Multimedia Journalism

Professional visual journalists can submit digital projects to a contest.

The World Press Photo Digital Storytelling Contest seeks entries that include professional photography in combination with, but not limited to, audio and visual elements like video, animation, graphics, illustrations, sound or text.

The contest has four format-based categories: singles, stories, long-term projects and open format. These format-based categories encompass all thematic categories from previous contests – such as general news, spot news, contemporary issues, environment, nature, sports, portraits – therefore entries on a wide range of themes may be submitted to the appropriate format-based category.

Winners will be invited to a winners' event. The winners of Photo of the Year and Photo Story of the Year will also receive EUR5,000 (US$6,087) each.

Entries must have been published in 2021 in English or with English subtitles.

The deadline is Jan. 11, 2022.
