World Press Photo


August 29, 2014 Global issues and striking images converge at prestigious photojournalism exhibition World Press Photo, back on display in Montréal’s Marché Bonsecours. From August 27 to September 28, 2014, current affairs buffs and photography enthusiasts alike will be flocking to contemplate the prize-winning photos, taken by professional photographers around the globe.

Intended for a large audience, the world’s most renowned traveling exhibition features 150 of the year’s most powerful press photographs, selected among over 100,000 entries by an international jury of experts. One of the most important photographic events on the fall cultural calendar in Montréal, World Press Photo is also presented in over 100 different cities across the globe every year.

Visitors will also discover the original Oxfam-Québec exhibition. French photographer William Daniels travelled to Cotonou in the Republic of Benin to capture images of youth benefiting from the support of Oxfam-Québec. Daniels is the recipient of two World Press Photo awards (2008 and 2014).
