Pictures of the Year

On display through Sept. 1, 2014

"Pictures of the Year" presents dramatic, award-winning images of the people, events and issues that shaped the world in 2013. The exhibit spotlights the best news images from Pictures of the Year International (POYi), the oldest photojournalism contest in the world. Some of the top awards honor the Newspaper Photographer of the Year and Freelance/Agency Photographer of the Year, as well as photographs that contribute to community awareness, global vision and world understanding.

The exhibit is the result of an ongoing partnership between the Newseum and POYi, which began in 2011 when the Newseum exhibited the 2010 winners. The display enhances the Newseum's reputation as one of the world's premier institutions for the exhibition of award-winning news and feature photography. "Pictures of the Year" joins a long list of world-class Newseum photo exhibits, including "Creating Camelot: The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe," which features rarely displayed images of John F. Kennedy, and the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery, the largest collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs in the world.

In addition to the exhibit, the Newseum will host special events and Inside Media programs featuring the winning photographers and their work. "Pictures of the Year" will be on display at the Newseum through Sept. 1, 2014.


Nikon is the exclusive sponsor of the 2014 "Pictures of the Year" exhibit.


The exhibit was created in cooperation with Pictures of the Year International, a program of the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism.
