The annual World Press Photo Exhibition is the best known of World Press Photo’s activities and is a leading event in the organization’s calendar.
Every year following the World Press Photo Contest, the winning images go on tour. In April, the exhibition is officially opened in Amsterdam and can be seen at venues around the globe until March of the next year. The tour program takes in approximately 100 cities in 45 countries and is still expanding.
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 exhibition in Berlin takes place at the Willy-Brandt-Haus, from 17.06. – 10.07.2011.
