Become a Friend of World Press Photo

Support our mission

Help us connect the world to the stories that matter

For €80 a year (or more if you'd like), you can become a Friend of our organization and directly support our annual contest, exhibitions and educational programs. Together we can elevate the voices of photojournalists and documentary photographers, and connect the world to the stories that matter.

As a Friend of World Press Photo you will get:

  • Free entrance to any World Press Photo exhibition around the world
  • A free yearbook (in English) sent to your home
  • Invitations to special (online) events with award winning photographers

By becoming a Friend of World Press Photo, you're making a contribution to:

  • Supporting press freedom and freedom of expression
  • Helping our exhibitions to travel to even more places around the world
  • Increasing our educational programs and support for photographers
  • Better representation of photojournalists and documentary photographers from across the globe to highlight underrepresented stories

Please note:

Your Friends membership will be renewed yearly in April, when the winners of the Contest are announced, a new yearbook is released and the exhibition starts its worldwide tour. We will email you before taking any payment.
