One of the most important press photo exhibitions of the world is coming again to the Museum of Ethnography, Budapest. World Press Photo 2015 aims to inform, and to inspire an understanding of the world.
World Press Photo is dedicated to supporting photojournalism and documentary photography worldwide, and to stimulating high standards. We strive to generate wide public interest in photography, to build appreciation for photographers' work, and to encourage the free exchange of information.

Each year, World Press Photo invites photographers from across the globe to participate in the World Press Photo Contest, the top photojournalism competition worldwide. An independent international jury of 19 experts judges all entries in Amsterdam, and an annual exhibition takes the prizewinning images to 100 locations in 45 countries. It is seen by millions of visitors.
