»World Press Photo Exhibition 2022«

The World Press Photo Contest annually honors the best photojournalists and documentary photographers. This year, 64,823 entries were submitted by 4,066 photographers from 130 countries. Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus presents the World Press Photo exhibition for the 19th time. The photographs of the nominees and winners can be seen from 20 May to 12 June at Willy-Brandt-Haus.

The annual World Press Photo Contest has been awarding the images of professional photographers since 1955. The World Press Photo Foundation is supported by its strategic partners, the Dutch Postcode Lottery and PwC. In 2022, a new regional strategy was introduced to create a geographical balance among the award-winning images. Since this year, applications have been divided into six regions: Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central America, South America as well as Southeast Asia and Oceania. There are four format-based categories in each region: Singles, Stories, Long-Term Project, and Open Format.

In addition to the global jury, six regional juries are now also involved and so this year 31 highly qualified jury members from all over the world helped to select the winning images. In each region, a selection of the entries was first made by the regional jury. Subsequently, the global jury – consisting of the six regional jury chairmen and the global jury chairman – decided on the 24 regional winners and selected the four global winners.

This year’s winner of the “World Press Photo of the Year” is Amber Bracken from Canada. The red dresses in her picture, hung on crosses along a roadside, commemorate deceased children. They died at Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia – an institution created to “assimilate” Indigenous children. On June 19, 2021, 215 unmarked graves were discovered there.

The regional winners come from 23 different countries and present courageos stories from all parts of the world.
