World Press Freedom Day is celebrated every year on May 3 in order to raise awareness about the value of the freedom of the press. The UN General Assembly declared this day as World Press Freedom Day to remind governments of their duties to respect and maintain the right to freedom of expression that is given under Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Given below are some World Press Freedom Day images for you to share with your friends and family and remind them of the importance of freedom of the press in the world.
