CZECH PRESS PHOTO is a prestigious photography contest with a follow-up exhibition, providing an independent and authentic visual testimony of life as witnessed by professional Czech and Slovak photojournalists. The purpose of the annual competitions and exhibitions, which have been held since 1995, is to enable the public to become direct witnesses of events and phenomena that took place during the previous year, to motivate photographers to a more personal approach in their everyday work routine and to stimulate the development of the media of photography. Czech Press Photo gives the opportunity to present works in which the mainstream media are not interested for various reasons and supports the interest in photojournalism as a tool of interpersonal recognition and understanding.
