If you find yourself in Ottawa this summer, be sure to check out the 2018 World Press Photo exhibition at the Canadian War Museum from July 20 to August 12. This free exhibit shows the results of the annual World Photo Press Photo contest, which rewards professional photographers for the best single exposure pictures contributing to the past year of visual journalism.
Since its launch more than 60 years ago, the World Photo Press has been helping photographers expose their work to a global audience through an annual photo contest. In the current era of ‘fake news,’ this year’s more than 73,000 entries were judged in terms of their accurate, fair, and visually compelling insights about our world.
The next Canadian stops for the gallery include the Marché Bonsecours in Montreal from August 29 to September 30, Brookfield Place in Toronto from October 2 to 22, and La Pulperie in Chicoutimi from October 19 to November 11.
