With our worldwide exhibitions, and festival, we showcase stories that make people stop, feel, think and act. Our contests reward the best in visual journalism and digital storytelling. Our Develop programs - the 6x6 Global Talent Program, the African Photojournalism Database, and the Joop Swart Masterclass - encourage diverse accounts of the world that present stories with different perspectives. Through our Explore program, we encourage debate and research on the important issues facing our community. Witness, our online magazine, publishes new talent and new thinking in visual journalism and storytelling. Accuracy, diversity, and transparency are our core values. We do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of age, gender, race or ethnic origin, religion, or sexual orientation, and we oppose discrimination and harassment in our community.
