Since 1955, World Press Photo has invited press photographers of the world to participate in this prestigious annual international competition in press photography. The exhibition provides a platform for creative developments in photojournalism and is visited by over two million people in more than 50 countries every year.
This year's exhibition showcases work from photographers of 23 nationalities, selected from over 108,000 entries. The winning photographs encompass the horrors of war, contemporary issues, people in the news, sport, the arts and the natural world, providing a not-to-be-missed overview of our world, featuring the World Press Photo of the Year by South African photographer Jodi Bieber.
Jury chair David Burnett, photojournalist and founding member of Contact press Images, said of the winning photograph, 'the power of the picture lies in the dignity of its subject and in the thoughtful treatment by the photographer'.
