World Press Photo Exhibition

Brisbane Powerhouse

The World Press Photo Exhibition returns to Brisbane Powerhouse from July 6 to August 4, showcasing the best and most important photojournalism from around the globe.

World Press Photo Exhibition

Founded in 1955 by a group of Dutch photographers to expose their work to an international audience, the World Press Photo Contest has grown into one of the world’s most prestigious competitions, rewarding the best in photojournalism and documentary photography from around the world.

Through a successful worldwide exhibition program, the World Press Photo Foundation presents to millions of people the stories that matter.

From the 24 regional winners, the 2024 Contest jury selected the four global winners: the World Press Photo of the Year, World Press Photo Story of the Year, World Press Photo Long-Term Project Award, and World Press Photo Open Format Award.

World Press Photo Exhibition

"These final selected works are a tapestry of our world today, centered on images we believe were made with respect and integrity, that can speak universally and resonate far beyond their origins. This is an opportunity to applaud the work of press and documentary photographers everywhere – made with courage, intelligence, and ingenuity – and to amplify the importance of the stories they are telling, often in unimaginable circumstances" - Fiona Shields, Head of Photography at The Guardian and 2024 World Press Photo Contest global jury chair
