Copyright & feedback
|World Press Photo offers this archive as a reference resource for research and review purposes only. It is a record of over 50 years of winning photos in the World Press Photo contest, made available to the professional photographic community and those interested in developments within photojournalism. |
Intellectual property rights to the images remain with the photographers and publications concerned, and none of the photos from this archive may be reproduced, distributed and/or published by any means whatsoever without prior permission of the copyright holder.
Photos are watermarked and electronically protected against reproduction. World Press Photo has made every reasonable effort to trace and inform copyright holders prior to publication of photos on this site.
We will be happy to provide any assistance we can in helping those who wish to publish photos to get in touch with photographers, agencies or publications in a position to grant permissions.
Credits and CaptionsThere are occasional gaps in the archive, where an image has not been available for inclusion. Original material has not always been easily accessible. Although images here have been scanned at high resolution, the material available in the archive, particularly from the early years of the contest, has not always been of optimum quality.
|Photo credits have been compiled using information submitted at the time. Whilst every effort has been made to keep factual information in captions accurate and up to date, sometimes exact names and locations are missing, and occasionally not even the name of the photographer is known. World Press Photo welcomes any assistance in completing or improving archive material and information, from visitors to the site or the photographers themselves. |
