Top photojournalist, and Canon Ambassador, Gary Knight (co-founder of the VII Photo agency) has been announced as the chair of the 2014 World Press Photo Contest jury, supported by an international jury of 18 leading professionals in the field of photojournalism, who will be revealed at a later date.

World Press Photo’s much-lauded annual competition is the leading photojournalism contest in the world, and free to enter for all professional photojournalists and their representatives. The entry website will open at the beginning of December 2013.

Knight, the founder of the Program for Narrative & Documentary Practice at the Tufts University Institute for Global Leadership, USA, is also co-founder of the VII Photo agency and the GroundTruth Project. He divides his time between academia and long-term photography assignments. He was previously a jury member in the 2004 and 2006 Photo Contests and chaired the jury in 2008.

Reflecting on the task of judging the contest, Knight commented: “The World Press Photo contest evolves every year as it seeks to adapt to the rapid changes in the media landscape. The very definition of what constitutes the press or what is a photograph has transformed since the Award was instituted. World Press Photo takes its role as the world’s most prestigious and multi-genre global photojournalism award very seriously and, as I look forward to chairing the jury again, there are new categories and a more diverse demographic of jurors to adapt to this changing topography.”

He continued: “Submissions pour in from all over the world and the awards given reflect the confidence and ability that indigenous photographers representing their own communities have. This reach has contributed to the success of the World Press Photo Foundation and Academy to develop the important educational opportunities worldwide in areas where such opportunities may not otherwise exist. This suggests more than just unprecedented evolution and the great reach of the award - I believe it is an indicator that while the media landscape remains turbulent - photojournalism and documentary photography are adaptive and very healthy.”

Changes to rules and procedures

The 2014 Photo Contest edition will include a number of changes as Michiel Munneke, Managing Director, World Press Photo, explained: “There has been a lot of discussion and widespread speculation regarding the permissible levels in post-processing of image files in the contest. We have evaluated the contest rules and protocols and examined how to create more transparency, and we have changed the procedures for examining the files during the judging. We will announce further details when the 2014 Photo Contest opens for entries later this year, but the bottom line is that we will need to be able to rely on the integrity and professionalism of the participating photographers.”

How to enter the contest

The 2014 World Press Photo Contest will be open for participants to enter their work from the beginning of December 2013. The deadline for submissions is 15 January 2014, 23.59 (CET). Entries may only be submitted online via the World Press Photo entry website. A user name and password are required to enter and can be requested from December 2013 onwards. The deadline for requesting a user name and password is 9 January 2014, 23.59 (CET) and more details can be found here.

In the 2013 contest, 103,481 images were submitted and the number of participating photographers was 5,666 – representing 124 different nationalities. With so many images to assess and judge, it’s no easy task being a jury member, and Knight will chair the arduous judging process at the World Press Photo office in Amsterdam from 1 February until 13 February 2014, the results being announced on 14 February 2014 in a press conference and on the foundation’s website.

The prize-winning pictures will then be presented in an exhibition that travels through more than 100 cities in over 45 countries, to start in Amsterdam on 18 April 2014.

  • World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon.
