The World Press Photo Digital Storytelling Contest
Digital technologies have transformed how we produce and consume stories.
The World Press Photo Digital Storytelling Contest rewards those producing the best forms of visual journalism enabled by these changes.
The contest is open to digital storytellers, visual journalists, producers, and entry coordinators, with submissions that include the work of a professional visual journalist.
All 3 nominees in each of the 3 categories are invited to the World Press Photo Festival in Amsterdam. A representative from each of the nominated productions will have their travel and lodging paid for by the World Press Photo Foundation. The nominees in each category will receive a diploma and a Golden Eye Award, presented during the annual Awards Show.
The World Press Photo Foundation launched its Multimedia Contest in 2011 (renamed the Digital Storytelling Contest in 2016), as a way to recognize the new forms of visual storytelling being enabled by the changing media economy.
