Welcome to the World Press Photo entry website, where we accept entries for the 2017 Photo Contest.

Before you can enter the contest, you will need to register and have your account approved. The registration deadline is Friday, January 6, 2017 at 12:00 CET.

Once your application has been approved, you will be able to log in to the site to manage your account and upload images. Please note: Once an entry has been submitted it is considered final and may not be changed anymore. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 12:00 CET.

Before you start:

  • The code of ethics¬†that has been introduced for the last contest and the entry rules must be accepted before entering.

  • Guidance on how to write captions and avoid manipulation is available here: http://www.worldpressphoto.org/activities/photo-contest/verification-process

  • Long-Term Projects is now one category, and accepts entries shot by either an individual photographer or a group of two or more photographers.

  • Story entries should contain 2-10 images. Long-Term Projects entries consist of between 24-30 pictures.

  • Participants must provide file(s) as recorded by the camera for all images that proceed to the final stages of the contest. These file(s) will be requested and studied confidentially between 28 January and 12 February 2017. Failure to provide these files when requested will lead to the elimination of the entry.

  • If manipulation is detected in an entry, the photographer(s) will be contacted in the period mentioned above to offer an explanation that will be forwarded to the jury. Once contacted, photographer(s) will have 36 hours to respond.
