The annual World Press Photo exhibition is the best known of World Press Photo’s activities and is a highlight in the organization’s calendar.
The exhibition is a showcase for creativity in photojournalism and a platform for developments in the profession, part of World Press Photo’s aim of encouraging and stimulating the work of press photographers around the world. The show also attracts a broader public and, because of the wide-ranging focus of the contest, forms an eyewitness record of world events from the previous year.
The World Press Photo Exhibition returns to Southbank Centre, bringing together the most powerful, moving and sometimes disturbing images of the year. This year, award-winning photographs from around the world capture conflicts in Syria, Israel and the Palestinian territories, Afghanistan and Sudan. The sport category covers the 2012 Olympic Games in London and the nature category includes spectacular views of the underwater world.
You can attend free to this event between 8 and 26 November 2013. I hope you enjoy that amazing picture.
