World Press Photo 2018
World Press Photo 2018 once again turns Barcelona into one of the famous cities in the world where the winning photographs of the prestigious photojournalism prize are shown and one of the few cities to display the winning works of this digital narrative contest. The 14th edition of the international World Press Photo exhibition will be held by the CCCB (Contemporary Culture Centre). Organised by the Fundació Photographic Social Vision, the exhibition includes a comprehensive programme of parallel activities and guided tours. For an amazing stay in Barcelona, take a look at beautiful apartments by Two Sisters Apartments in the neighborhood of Sant Antoni.
Under the slogan "To see and to understand", World Press Photo 2018 mainly shows works previously unpublished in Spain, offering access to unmanipulated stories, enriching the different points of view on current affairs. For the first time ever, the Fundació World Press Photo has presented 6 photographs nominated to win this year’s World Press Photo Prize, opening up a debate regarding which is the most representative photo of 2018. This reflection will remain valid after the official announcement of the winning image and over the course of the exhibition, where the 6 photographs will be particularly prominent.
For 6 decades, the World Press Photo Foundation has been working from its headquarter in Amsterdam as a creative, independent, nonprofit organization. In that time, the world has changed continuously, and new technologies in the media have transformed journalism and storytelling. The mission has expanded, and they draw on the experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world through this challenging and exciting landscape.
