Renowned as “the contest designed for photojournalists by photojournalists,” and incorporating the many facets of the visual journalism industry, NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism competition annually attracts the most talented professionals in four divisions – still, video, multimedia and editing – collectively representing nearly 100 categories.

The images and stories entered in the competition and exhibited here are created by some of the most outstanding visual journalists of our time. More than just compelling photos and videos, though, the entries are storytelling images and essays about some of the most important issues facing us today. The competition truly is a rejoicing of the fact that photojournalism remains the best way to tell the world’s story!
