World Press Photo Launches Multimedia Contest

January 20, 2011 /Photography News/ World Press Photo has launched its first ever contest for multimedia productions in visual journalism.

The organization has held an annual press photography contest since 1955. While photography continues to play a significant role in global media, World Press Photo recognizes the increasing importance of photography products in the market, and is aware of a broadening in demand beyond the still image in printed media. The organization is hoping to provide impetus to photojournalistic multimedia by recognizing productions of exceptional quality.

The 2011 multimedia contest is set up separately from the annual press photography contest.

  • online or offline linear multimedia
  • online interactive productions, with a journalistic storyline
Productions may include (but are not limited to) such audio and visual elements as photography, video, animation, graphics, illustrations, sound and text. Professional photography should play a significant role in telling the visual story.

The nominated work will be judged on their impact and editing, as well as their originality and innovative execution.

Judging will take place at the World Press Photo office in Amsterdam from 18-21 March 2011.

The jury will shortlist three productions per category. First, second and third prizes in each category will be announced during the World Press Photo Awards Days, from 6-7 May 2011.

First prizes will be awarded a cash award of €5,000. The winning multimedia will be published on
