High quality images confront the viewer with current situations in the world and the human emotions that are accompanied by that  – suddenly, the stories we know from the news get an actual face. Visual journalism is a valuable tool to create more attention to these happenings, and this is exactly what the World Press Photo Exhibition is offering. 

Internet plays a big part in how the world has turned into a global village. The crisis in Syria, the refugee situation, ISIS attacks, and racial violence – we are just a few clicks away of reading and seeing what is going on. Literally a few clicks away, because just as easy as we can access this news, we can also go back to our normal, often safe, lives again.

The focus of the World Press Photo Foundation lays on freedom of information, they want to inspire and engage the audience through the craft of visual storytelling and good journalistic practice. The exhibition with this year's winning photos is shown in 45 countries, spread over 100 cities, allowing a wide range of people to come visit – find out online until when you can see the exhibition nearest you.
