World Press Photo

This year's 55th annual World Press Photo exhibition profiles the globe’s top press photographers and showcases the world’s best press photos of 2011. It's hard to compare the quality of work to anything else you might have seen before. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, the world's most esteemed photography contest is the press equivalent of the Olympics.

Back in Brisbane for it's fifth consecutive year is the world most prestigious exhibition of photojournalism. Travelling across 45 countries around the globe, we are very fortunate to be exposed to the amazing showcase of skill that is World Press Photo.

This year's 55th annual World Press Photo exhibition profiles the globe’s top press photographers and showcases the world’s best press photos of 2011. It's hard to compare the quality of work to anything else you might have seen before. As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, the world's most esteemed photography contest is the press equivalent of the Olympics.

The images are literally the best in the world. It may seem hard to imagine how an image alone can shape life and history, but when taking in the imagery of the contest's winners, it becomes clear just how significant a photograph can be. To have the worlds best of anything in our town is a roaring big deal. If news and the media industry on a global scale is something of interest to you, World Press Photo is an exhibition you won't want to miss.

With many confronting and controversial works on display, you will become exposed to a new degree of press culture like nothing you have seen before. Be brave and broaden your mind with World Press Photo.
