World Press Photo 2018

International Photojournalism Exhibition

World Press Photo 2018 once again turns Barcelona into one of the foremost cities in the world where the winning photographs of the prestigious photojournalism contest are shown, and the few cities that exhibit the winning productions of the Digital Storytelling Contest.

The fourteenth edition of the World Press Photo  exhibition in Barcelona, on display at the CCCB, is organised by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, which offers a comprehensive programme of side activities and guided visits for a deeper and more understanding experience.

Under the motto #verparaentender, the exhibition shows mainly works previously unpublished in our country, offering the possibility to access stories without manipulations, enriching the different points of view on current affairs.

For the first time, the World Press Photo Foundation has shortlisted six nominees for the major prize of the World Press Photo of the Year, chosen from amongst the nominated singles and the nominated stories in each category. The debate regarding the most emblematic image of 2017 will continue after the official announcement of the winning photograph and throughout the exhibition, where these 6 images will be highlighted.

The 137 winning photographs have been chosen from among the 73,044 images that were submitted to the contest, produced by 4,548 photographers from 125 countries. Spain, after China, the United States and Italy, is the fourth country in the world, from where most photographers submitted their work, with 229 entries.

Side activities

The Photographic Social Vision Foundation will expand the exhibition with guided visits and other side activities with the aim of fostering the reflection on the value and actual challenges of visual journalism, and taking a deeper look at the issues addressed by the winning projects.

Side activities of the exhibition include, free of charge screenings of the prize-winning productions from the Long Format and Short Format categories of the Digital Storytelling contest not only at the Hall of the CCCB but also at other venues of the cultural network in Barcelona such as Civic Centres, Libraries and Theatres.
