Showing a selection of photographs from the 2011 annual contest, the 2012 World Press Photo Exhibition portrays more than a startling and often provocative window on world issues, it gives visibility to the role of photojournalism and its power to inspire and shape us.2011’s prize-winning photographs will travel to 45 countries over the course of a year, and will be published in the World Press yearbook.

Over two million people will go to a hundred different venues to see the images, and the yearbook is published in seven languages and distributed worldwide. The contest is judged by leading independent experts in visual journalism who represent various aspects of the profession.

The World Press archive of winning images is not only a record of more than half a century of human history, but a showcase of successive styles in photojournalism. See this years history-in-the-making for yourself.

    Very good. My first time. A little muddled after looking at the exhibition and not really knowing if there was a 'leader', and who it was. Found a few meet up people though.

    The exhibition was as thought provoking and interesting as usual. The photowalk was a little short and we needed to have times organised beforehand - was a bit messy. Good to have a sit down afterwards at Mojo.

    Thoroughly enjoyable. The Exhibition was sobering but educational. The people interesting and fun and the total event was well worth attending. Thanks to organiser(s).

    This exhibition always great...though depressing at the same time. Tsunami photos my favourites. I posted a few from the walk around the waterfront. Cheers Andrew
