World Press Photo 2017 Exhibition Rome

Dates: 28.04.17 - 28.05.17. Address: Palazzo delle Esposizioni, 194 Via Nazionale, 00184 Rome, Italy.

The World Press Photo 2017 Exhibition will be held in Rome at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni from the 28th April to the 28th May 2017 as the world premiere exhibition together with Seville and Lisbon. The World Press Photo is one of the most important awards in the field of photojournalism. Every year, for over 60 years, an independent jury of international experts, is called upon to express themselves on thousands of requests sent to the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam by photojournalists from around the world. The 2017 contest drew entries from around the world: 5,034 photographers from 125 countries submitted 80,408 images. The jury gave prizes in eight categories to 45 photographers from 25 countries. The World Press Photo of the Year honours the photographer whose visual creativity and skills made a picture that captures or represents an event or issue of great journalistic importance in the last year. The exhibition is not only a gallery of stunning images, but it is also an historical document that allows us to relive the crucial events of our time. The World Press Photo 2017, promoted by Roma Capitale - Assessorato alla Crescita culturale, is realized by the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam and organized by Azienda Speciale Palaexpo in collaboration with 10b Photography.
