World Press Photo 2018
It is the seventeenth time in a row that WestLicht hosts the World Press Photo exhibition. As icons of the recent past, the awarded single images and photo series form a unique retrospective of last year’s events, covering a vast array of topics.
Each year professional juries select the best press photos in a number of categories, i.e. contemporary issues, spot news, sports, etc.
This year some topics in the contest include the rise of Nationalism in the USA, the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, often overlooked by the western public, the ongoing battles in northern Iraq and the life of refugees after their arrival in Europe. For the first time, awards were given out in the newly established section Environment,
We will meet at 18:30 in Protected content and then explore the exhibition on our own (there is no guided tour) - afterwards we can have a coffee/drink at one of the nearby pubs.
Looking forward to meet you on Thursday!
PS: Please consider that some images may be of graphical nature.
