The Fundación Chirivella Soriano C.V. will once again be the venue for this prestigious event from10th February.
The World Press Photo exhibition is a travelling homage, reaching 45 countries and visited by over a million people every year.
The 60th edition has synthesised a total of 80,408 imagesfrom over 5,000 photographers from 128 countries, of which 45 have been selected for prizes.
The exhibition received over 7,000 visitors in the 2015 edition, which was also held at the Palau Joan de Valeriola, (C/Valeriola, 13) for what are known as the Oscars of photo-journalism.
The photos show some of the most significant events, captured by photographers, who in many cases risk their lives to bring the reality of world events to the attention of the general public.
The exhibitions are organised thematically with topics such as domestic life, current affairs, nature, sports, news and portraits.
The jury selected a photo by the Danish photographer Mads Nissen as the World Press Photo of the Year 2014. Entitled Jon and Alex, it shows a gay couple in Saint Petersburg, highlighting homophobia in Russia.
