The 2017 World Press Photo Contest saw judges fiercely debate over 80,408 submissions by 5,034 photographers based in 125 countries. They finally awarded 45 photographers (including 20 Canon users) across eight categories for their outstanding contribution to photojournalism.
Now that the contest has come to a close, the next phase begins; exposing the work worldwide through a travelling exhibition that opens in Amsterdam on April 14, 2017. Thereafter, the prize-winning photographs will travel to 100 cities and 45 countries, with an expected audience of four million visitors.
Canon, which has sponsored World Press Photo since 1992, will print the prize-winning work on Canon large-format and Arizona flatbed printers to ensure a stunning display in these specially curated exhibitions that finish in Oldenburg, Germany on March 11, 2018.
