World Press Photo exhibition coming to Dublin for first time in over

first_imgSOME OF THE best photojournalism created last year will be on display in Dublin from the end of this month.A travelling exhibition of the 2013 World Press Photo contest makes its way back to the capital for the first time in more than 20 years on 30 November.The images will be exhibited at the CHQ Building in the Docklands area of the city from 30 November to 22 December (Mon-Fri 10am-7pm; Sat 10am-6pm; Sun noon-6pm).This year’s overall winner was Paul Hansen from Sweden for his depiction of the burial of two small children in Gaza.Among the other winners were stills from Europe’s austerity demonstrations, Syria’s conflict, Central America’s gang problems and the Olympic Games in London. But it’s not just the big events – powerful glimpses of daily life are also favoured by some of the talented photographers.Split into the nine themed categories, including contemporary issues, observed portraits, staged portraits, daily life, sports action, general news, sports feature, nature and spot news, the pictures reflect global life as it was in 2012.Almost 105,000 images were submitted by 5,666 photographers from 124 countries in the 56th annual competition.last_img read more
