This is a JOINT ACTIVIVITY with the Montréal Music, Arts & Culture Group kindly organized by Esteve Favrel-Sánchez.

If you have already signed up to the event on his group, NO NEED to signed up here.
I thought this event would be of interest to the Photography Group, so I wanted to provide visibility to those who are not member of the other group,

Event Description
For the 12th year, the World Press Photo Montreal Exhibition is the opportunity for everyone to admire and best understand via pictures, in a one and only venue, the most important events and the issues at stake in the previous year. Gathered in 10 categories (sport, nature and world news among others), this edition comprises works of 54 talented photographers whose pictures were selected by a jury of experts among more than the Protected content photographs.

Each picture and all details concerning the shots are briefly commented. This exhibition runs through more than Protected content during the year, thus attracting millions of visitors throughout the world. It aims at a wide public, and includes an important educational section. Teachers from all grades are invited to bring their students to discover a remarkable springboard into the world, as well as a fantastic and often marking source of inspiration.

The World Press Photo activities are built on the following principles: political independence, respect for press photographers' work and reject of censorship.

NOTE: We must be at least 10 attendees to enjoy the special fare.
