World Press Photo is considered the most important photojournalism exhibition in the world, both for the quality of the photographs and the debate it generates on the issues it addresses. The exhibition is the result of an international competition organized annually by the foundation of the same name and aimed at fostering a better understanding of the world through high-quality press photography. It is one of the photography events that attracts most visitors in the city, with a record-breaking total of more than 56.400 visits during the most recent month-long exhibition in 2016.

Photographic Social Vision organises at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona alongside the exhibition:

  • screenings
