World Press Photo 2021
By Charlotte Stace
The CCCB welcomes the 17th edition of the World Press Photo exhibition. The Photographic Social Vision Foundation has organised this international photojournalism exhibition, which brings together the winners of the World Press Photo photography and digital narrative competitions.
The exhibition presents the prize-winning photographs and multimedia pieces which have been chosen for their exceptional visual quality. The images all offer different perspectives on global current affairs over the past year. This year, four Spanish photographers are among the prize-winners: Luis Tato, Aitor Garmendia, Jaime Culebras and Claudia Reig Valera.
There will also be a carefully chosen programme of parallel activities open to the public. These have been designed to generate debate and to examine in greater depth the themes of the winning projects. Furthermore, there is a series of guided tours, aimed at schools, companies and the general public, which aim to enrich the understanding of the exhibits and offer enlightenment regarding the values and challenges of photojournalism today.
