World Press Photo Exhibition

World Press Photo Exhibition

23.09. – 30.10. 2022. Hungarian National Museum

The World Press Photo Foundation is pleased to announce the regional winners for the 2022 Contest.

We are proud to announce the regional winners for the 65th World Press Photo Contest. In line with the new regional strategy, an independent specialized regional and global jury has decided on the 2022 regional winners, for each of the four categories; Singles, Stories, Long-Term Projects and Open Format. 

The World Press Photo Contest recognizes the best photojournalism and photo documentary of the previous year. This year the winners were chosen out of 64,823 photographs and open format entries, including 4,066 photographers from 130 countries.

Joumana El Zein Khoury, executive director of World Press Photo Foundation, about this year’s contest: It is exhilarating to see the way in which the new regional contest set up is producing the changes that we were hoping for. Changes that we believe will offer different perspectives on, and a deeper connection to, photojournalism and documentary photography from all over the world.

In the past four years, the exhibition held at the Hungarian National Museum. It was one of the most visited exhibitions in the world, with more than forty-five thousand visitors. After the previous extraordinary public success, the exhibition will be open for five weeks this year as well.

About the World Press Photo Foundation

We are a global platform connecting photojournalists, documentary photographers and our worldwide audiences through trustworthy storytelling.

World Press Photo was founded in 1955 when a group of Dutch photographers organized a contest (“World Press Photo”) to expose their work to an international audience. Since then, our mission has expanded. Our contest has grown into one of the world’s most prestigious competitions, rewarding the best in photojournalism and documentary photography from around the world. Through our successful worldwide exhibition program, we present to millions of people the stories that matter.

Fire fighting on country with Warddeken. Third Trip for Nat Geo.
“This is my country.
This is where I recognise myself.
I have a responsibility to manage
it now and into the future”
Andrew Marangurra – Traditional Owner
For thousands of generations, Nawarddeken clan groups lived on their customary estates in the stone country. They were part of a living landscape, integral to the health of the stone country, Nawarddeken walked, camped throughout their lands, each dry season undertaking landscape-scale traditional burning.
With the arrival of Balanda (white people), Nawarddeken began to leave the stone country attracted by Christian missions and government trading posts, opportunities to work in the mining and buffalo industries, and the appeal of larger settlements.
A Nawarddeken diaspora resulted and, by the late 1960s, the Stone Country was largely
depopulated. Nawarddeken elders considered the country orphaned.
During this time, our elders saw and felt the devastation of large wildfires and an increasing number of feral animals impacting biodiversity and cultural sites. Their concern was matched only by their desire and motivation to return to country, to once again look after the Stone country, and maintain and pass on their knowledge to future generations.
In the 1970s a return to country movement began in Australia, which resulted in Nawarddeken moving back to outstation communities, the traditional homes in the stone country.
In 2002 after decades spent bringing other Nawarddeken back to country, traditional owner Bardayal Lofty Nadjamerrek returned to his childhood home at Kabulwarnamyo to establish the first of three Warddeken ranger bases, providing employment in the region and allowing landowners to make a living on country. Establishing their own schools, housing and infrastructure.
Warddeken Rangers were the first in the world to earn carbon credits from the traditional burning of country.
Although the diaspora still exists, The elder’s
