The Thermos Foundation, Taiwan has announced that it will once again host this year’s World Press Photo Exhibition 2018 at its Studio 94 location. In 1955, a group of Dutch photographers organized an international contest to expose their work to a global audience. Since then, the contest has grown into the world’s most prestigious photography competition.
The World Press Photo Foundation is a creative, independent, nonprofit organization. It strives to keep abreast with the changing world, and new developments in the media and technology, which have completely transformed journalism and the power of storytelling. The World Press Photo of the Year honors the photographer whose visual creativity and skills made a picture that captures or represents an event or issue of great journalistic importance of the last year.
There are different categories that photographers may select to enter. The focus of this contest is to connect the world to stories that matter. These prize winning photographs are assembled into an exhibition that travels throughout the year to a hundred locations in forty-five different countries. Taiwan has been carefully screened and selected as one of the exhibition country host sites, with the Thermos Foundation as its esteemed host.
