World Press Photo 13, in its ninth international edition, takes place at the CCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) from the 6th of November to the 18th of December 2013.
This year’s event ‘Face Reality’ event is co-organized by the CCCB itself and the Fundació Photographic Social Vision and is exhibiting 143 photographs which have won the prestigious prize of recognition by Wold Press Photos 2013.
Among this year’s winners are three Spaniards: Bernat Armangué, Emilio Morenatti and Daniel Ochoa de Olza.
These three were selected from no less than 5,666 photographers of 124 nationalities, who submitted 103,481 images in eight categories, including: General News, Spot News, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, Observed Portraits, Staged Portraits, Nature and Sport.
The CCCB is also showing award winning works in the multimedia projects category, in which there are two Spanish winners this year.
This is a fascinating exhibition and should not be missed. As the website of the CCB states:
“´Face Reality’, the title of the presentation of WPP in Barcelona, invites visitors to witness the state of the world, free of censorship or manipulation, bringing us face to face with global and local reality that invites reflection and expands our viewpoints. As every year, the prize-winning images inform, delight and challenge, making World Press Photo a must for anyone who wants to be informed.”
