Tickets will be on sale soon.
One more time, the World Press Photo 2020 exhibition in Barcelona brings to our city the winning images of the prestigious photojournalism award and the winning works of its digital narrative contest, which in both cases are usually unpublished in our country. In addition, this is one of the few World Press Photo exhibitions in the world that showcases the Digital Narrative winning works, betting on interactivity and giving value to multimedia works. Meet the winners of the World Press Photo 2020 awards, in this link.
Organized by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, with the support of the Fundació Banc Sabadell, the World Press Photo 2020 exhibition will once again be based at the CCCB, an entity that co-produces the exhibition along with the Foundation. This sixteenth edition in Barcelona will be open from the 11th of November to the 13th of December. This year, the exhibition has been postponed from spring to autumn, due to the health emergency caused by COVID-19 .
The experience of the exhibition in Barcelona goes beyond the mere observation of the winning works, as it is complemented by a careful program of parallel activities open to the public , that generates debate and delves into the themes of the winning projects, as well as some highly recommended guided visits, created for schools, companies and general public, which enrich the understanding of the exhibition and enlightens about the values and challenges of nowadays photojournalism.
On the following months, we will open the selling of tickets for the exhibition and the guided visits. We will promptly inform you through this website, the social media of the Photographic Social Vision Foundation and the Facebook profile World Press Photo Exhibition Barcelona.
Guided visits to improve your experience!
With the aim of bringing current issues closer and deepening their context, the Education Area of the Photographic Social Vision Foundation expands the program of guided visits to the general public with new sessions every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am) in response to the high demand received and the success of guided visits in our previous editions.
In addition, it maintains the offer for schools, companies (behind closed doors and prior reservation) and social entities through the Apropa program. Over the course of 16 years, the educational service – one of the three main axes of the foundation – has offered and shared the tools necessary to visually understand the contemporary world around us. Since 2005, our Foundation offers an average of 100 commented visits to schools every year.
Also, Photographic Social Vision organizes a program of free activities open to everyone, such as debates and the projection of the winning works of the Digital Narrative Contest in its two categories – short and long format-.
The exhibition of the winning photographs, which begins the world tour in Amsterdam, can be visited in more than 120 cities around the world and 50 countries, reaching a global audience of more than 5 million viewers.
