Featuring the work of selected winners of NPPA’S 2022 Best of Photojournalism.

This selection of winning images and portfolios from the National Press Photographers Association 2022 Best of Photojournalism showcases a range of working professionals embedded deeply in their communities.

From portrait and sports photography to breaking news and politics, video photojournalism, print and video editing, long-form documentary and innovative online journalism, the Best of Photojournalism contest celebrates excellence in all forms of visual journalism.

Our 2022 winners list celebrates the best of visual journalism and what visual journalism can do at its best. Some of this year’s winners are currently on assignment on the frontlines of the Russian invasion into Ukraine. Others are currently behind their lenses out in the middle of the ocean, or similarly remote locales. These professionals are reporting on important stories from around the block as well as around the globe. The Best of Photojournalism contest committee and this year’s panel of judges are honored to celebrate the work created by this diverse and dedicated membership.

The images collected here represent just a fraction of the awardees in this year’s contest, all of which can be viewed online at
