The ninth international exhibition of the World Press Photo, organized by the Fundació Photographic Social Vision and the CCCB, brings together the 143 winning photographs in the prestigious international photojournalism award. This year’s selection includes three Spanish winners, Bernat Armangué, Emilio Morenatti and Daniel Ochoa de Olza. The CCCB is the only Spanish centre to show the winning works in the multimedia projects category created in 2011, in which there are two Spanish winners: Pep Bonet and Miquel Dewever-Plana.

Taking part this year were 5,666 photographers (235 Spanish) of 124 nationalities, who submitted 103,481 images in eight categories: General News, Spot News, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, Observed Portraits, Staged Portraits, Nature and Sport.

“FACE REALITY”, the title of the presentation of WPP in Barcelona, invites visitors to witness the state of the world, free of censorship or manipulation, bringing us face to face with global and local reality that invites reflection and expands our viewpoints. As every year, the prize-winning images inform, delight and challenge, making World Press Photo a must for anyone who wants to be informed.
