CPB Photo Awards is Now Accepting Entries

Photojournalists and visual storytellers have been at the forefront of reporting and documenting both life-challenging as well as underrepresented stories across the globe. They have worked diligently to keep a record of every incident, every disaster, every shift across time, from ecological collapses and climate change debates to paradigm shifts in culture and society, conversations on gender rights and egalitarian movements, to provide a point of reference to moments that might lose context in an instant world. It is through their hard work that we get to bear witness to events sitting in the comforts of our homes.

With this thought in mind, the CPB Foundation has announced the CPB Photo Awards to recognise the effort of photojournalists.
