sbcltr brings you some of the most expressive award winning images from the travelling photo exhibition

Every year, the World Press Photo curates a stunning exhibition of some the most evocative pictures clicked, travelling worldwide to 100 cities and 45 countries, to an audience of almost 4.4 million people globally. The free exhibition is a must see, as not only does it capture stunning visuals but also the mood of the world we inhabit. The selection process for it isn’t easy either. The World Press Photo Foundation (WPPF) has to sieve through thousands of entries before choosing them, this year alone at least 82,951, pictures were submitted from 128 countries. “This year we had more photographers and more entries than ever in our contest. We see that the photographers are as committed as we are to providing accurate and fair images on the world’s most important events and issues,” said Lars Boering, Managing Director, WPPF. In addition to that, they also have to choose winners of 15 categories such as General News, Contemporary Issues, People Stories, Nature, Daily Life etc, as well as the winner of the World Press Photo competition. All in all, a hard job, but the end results are always stunning visuals of global issues and what the year has been. Unfortunately for all of us, they do not exhibit in India. For this very reason, sblctr has made its list of some of the pictures you cannot miss from the 2016 exhibition. Have a look.
