The annual World Press Photo exhibition travels the world to show the best works by the world’s photojournalists during the past year.

World Press Photo is the premier competition for professional photographers, photojournalists and documentary photographers. The winning shots are documents of the year’s historic cultural events witnessed by journalists. The competition entries reflect world events through the viewfinders of correspondents working in the most unusual places, from hot spots to remote corners of the Earth. The jury rates them for objectivity, precision and penetration into the essence of our world. In its entire history World Press Photo has featured over 5,000 photographers from 125 countries and more than 80,000 photographs.

In the Northern Capital the World Press Photo competition winners can be seen at Loft Project ETAGI. The jury of the 60th annual competition chose a work by Burhan Ozbilici, a staff photographer with the Associated Press in Istanbul, as World Press Photo of the Year. He photographed the 22 year-old former policeman Mevlut Mert Altintaş shooting dead Andrey Karlov, the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, at the opening of an exhibition in Ankara on 19 December 2016. The photograph also won a prize in the “Breaking News” category. In total the World Press Photo 2017 jury awarded prizes in eight categories to 45 photographers from 25 countries. The winning shots will be printed on a wide-format Canon printer and Arizona printers.
