The World Press Photo exhibition, recognised as the most important touring exhibition of photojournalism in the world, displays the award winning photographs from the annual competition of the same name.
Each year an independent international jury consisting of thirteen members selects winners from photographs submitted by photojournalists, agencies, newspapers and photographers from all over the world. Photographs compete in 11 categories: news events, current affairs, people in the news, sport, action photography, sports reportage, contemporary issues, daily life, portraits, nature and art and entertainment. In the 2006 edition of the competition, 4,266 photographers from 123 countries took part, with photographs of major news events, such as the war in Iraq, the tsunami and the crisis in Haiti, as well as the unexpected moments of beauty offered up by sport, nature and daily life anywhere on the planet.
