World Press Photo 2022

The world in pictures

World Press Photo 2022 is coming to the CCCB to exhibit the best photographs of the year in the field of photojournalism.

Photography allows us to immortalise a moment and make it visible forever and for the whole world. It also helps us to make visible and give voice to the realities of places outside our environment. Photographic Social Vision, the non-profit organisation created to promote the social value of documentary photography, is organising for the eighteenth time the most renowned photojournalism exhibition in the field. From 4 November to 11 December you can visit World Press Photo 2022 at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB).

The exhibition brings the winning photographs and multimedia productions of the World Press Photo competition. The photographs and the digital narratives have been chosen for their visual quality and their relationship with current events in the world. The samples are unpublished in Spain and show realities that are probably far removed from our own.

For this edition, the organisers of the competition, of which the four overall winners have already been announced, have opted for a new territorial model, dividing the world into six regions for ensuring greater representation and diversity, both in terms of authorship and stories. In addition, this year, thematic limitations have been eliminated, and new categories have been created focusing on the format of the works: individual photographs, photographic reportage, long-term projects and open format.
