World Press Photo Barcelona 18
28th april > 27th may 2018
World Press Photo is considered the most important photojournalism exhibition in the world, both for the quality of the photographs as well as the debate it generates.
The 2018 edition in Barcelona closed on Sunday 27 May with a great success in terms of attendance: more than 51,000 visitors enjoyed the 137 most impressive photographs of international photojournalism and the winning entries in the Digital Narrative Competition.
As every year, Photographic Social Vision was responsible for the organization of the exhibition, which also offers guided tours to school groups and companies. The guided tours were attended by a record 130 groups (35% more than in the previous edition). The visits are an opportunity to understand the photographic stories and images present in the exhibition in all its depth.
This year the inauguration was attended by Ronaldo Schemidt, whose photograph “Venezuela Crisis” was the winner of the World Press Photo of the year, as well as Juan Barreto, winner of the third prize in the category of “Spot News” and Javier Arcenillas, national photographer who won the third prize with “Latidoamerica” in the category “Long Term Projects”. Representing the winning entries in the Digital Storytelling Competition, Max Duncan, winner of first prize in the Long Format category, presented his work “Down from the Mountains” at the CCCB. All the winning videos were shown to the city’s public, not only at the CCCB but also at various civic centres and libraries in Barcelona and for free.
