Pictures of the Year International competition

poy70 POYi is the oldest and the most prestigious photojournalism program and competition in the world. Each year, POYi recognizes excellence in photojournalism, multimedia, and visual editing. POYi is committed to engaging citizens worldwide with great documentary photography by sponsoring educational public exhibitions. POYi believes it is critical for citizens to experience your documentation of the news events and social issues facing our world. When you enter Pictures of the Year International, your work  reaches out to citizens worldwide and becomes a part of visual history

The mission of Pictures of the Year International is to recognize excellence in documentary photography and  photojournalism, within both still and motion photography formats. Images should reflect the news events and social issues with respect for the integrity of the scene and the intent of the moment. Scenes that are set up or staged by the photographer do not honor the essence of documentary photography. Portrait categories are the only exceptions. The essential goal is to review and honor work from this past year 2012. Respect the spirit of the competition
