About the World Press Photo Exhibition 2023

“Exhibition showcasing stories that make people stop, feel, think and act to a worldwide audience.”

Showcasing the best and most important photojournalism and documentary photography from around the world, the World Press Photo Exhibition 2023 returns to Hong Kong! 

Representing major news events and important moments overlooked by the mainstream media in 2022, the 2023 World Press Photo Contest winning works call attention to some of the most pressing issues facing the world today – from the devastating documentation of the war in Ukraine and historic protests in Iran, to the realities in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and the many faces of the climate crisis in countries ranging from Morocco to Australia to Peru to Kazakhstan. 

For its 66th edition, the contest saw 3,752 photographers from 127 countries enter 60,448 photographs. “The four global winners represent the best photos and stories from the most important and urgent topics in 2022. They also help to continue the tradition of what it is possible to do with photography, and how photography helps us to see the universality of the human condition,” said 2023 Contest global jury chair Brent Lewis, photo editor at The New York Times, co-founder of Diversify Photo.

Through a successful worldwide exhibition program, the World Press Photo Foundation presents to millions of people the stories that matter.
