Best shots from World Press Photo at CCCB, again

Barcelona, once again, is one of the first cities to display the winning photographs from this competition, now in its fifteenth year.

One of the not-to-be-missed events each year on Barcelona’s museum circuit is undoubtedly the exhibition of the winning photographs from the prestigious World Press Photo photojournalism awards. As is also the custom, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona will be hosting the exhibition, now in its fifteenth edition. Plus, our city is one of the first to get to see the pictures from the contest. The tour began in Amsterdam and will continue in more than one hundred locations around the world, reaching over 4 million viewers. The great majority of the photographs have never been seen before in our country, and show the world from a wide variety of perspectives, from social to pleasure, ecological issues and traditions. This year the theme of the exhibition is #veureientendre (seeing is understanding), which sums up the intentions of the Photographic Social Vision foundation, the body behind World Press Photo 2019. The experience goes beyond just looking at the photos on the wall, also including parallel activities and guided tours so everyone can understand in-depth the current status and functions, values and challenges of photojournalism.

Of the 78,801 photos submitted to the contest, we will get to see the 134 winners, including the shot that took first place, which accompanied this article by John Moore portraying a scene along the US-Mexico border. The exhibition will be on from 27 April through 26 May at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona at various times.

Tickets cost €6. More information is available on the CCCB website.
