World Press Photo 2020 Barcelona

11 November > 13 December 2020

#WPPBarcelona #WorldPressPhoto2020

Tickets will be on sale soon.


One more time, the World Press Photo 2020 exhibition in Barcelona will have our city as one of the first in the world to show 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photojournalism award and the winning works of its Digital Narrative contest, which in both cases are usually unpublished in our country.

Organized by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, 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. These new dates are due to the health emergency caused by COVID-19, which have led the Foundation to postpone the exhibition from spring to autumn.

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 and with a series of recommended commented visits, created for schools, companies and general public, which enrich the understanding not only of the global present news, but also of the functions, values ​​and challenges of photojournalism.

On the following months, we will open the selling of tickets for the exhibition and the commented 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.


Improve your experience, with the commented visits

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 commented visits of the last edition.

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.

The World Press Photo in Barcelona is one of the few exhibitions in the world that showcases the winning works of the Digital Narrative contest, a category that relies on interactivity and that values ​​multimedia works.

In addition, Photographic Social Vision organizes a program of free activities open to everyone to deepen in several subjects related to visual journalism, such as the projection of the winning works of the two categories – short and long format – of the Digital Narrative ContestThe 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.
