The News Photo Awards is an international competition for professional news photographers, which is being held by the TASS Russian News Agency for the second time.

With the planetwide lockdown now mostly over, the globe is still evolving so swiftly and unpredictably that sometimes people simply can’t comprehend or adapt to the events that are unfolding. This goes for not only the pandemic, but also for politics, economics, society, culture and many other spheres that are rapidly shifting and just as rapidly transforming the daily lives of billions worldwide.

Thanks to the endeavors of photojournalists all over the world, we can see all these global metamorphoses that emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those working on the ‘frontlines’ were the first to pinpoint and forever capture the most interesting things.

It is these stories captured by professionals that will convey to us and show us what this changed world looks like in 2021.
