World Press Photo 2015 Photo Contest Exhibition
For almost 60 years, World Press Photo
has been hosting a photojournalism contest where they have captured the best and worst our world and humanity has to offer. A jury selects the best photos to take home the top prizes in several categories and prints of these photos take a world tour with a stop in Toronto.
The World Press Photo 2015 Photo Contest Exhibition
|2nd Prize Singles, General News by Massimo Sestini, Italy|
is open to the public for free at The Allan Lambert Galleria at Brookfield Place
and I highly recommend a visit.
|1st Prize Singles, Spot News by Bulent Kilic, Turkey, Agence France-Presse|
|World Press Photo of the Year, 1st Prize Singles, Contemporary Issues by Mads Nissen, Denmark, Scanpix/Panos Pictures|
The World Press 2015 Photo Contest received almost 98,000 photos from 5,692 photographers from 131 countries. The photos were powerful and reminded me of the greatness and evil of this world and the people that live in it.

|1st Prize Singles, Nature by Yongzhi Chu, China|
|3rd Prize Singles, Nature by Sandra Hoyn, Germany, Laif|
This years exhibition seemed to be much smaller than last years, maybe that has to do with all the photos being disqualified for manipulation of their pictures, and I found the World Press Photo 2014 Contest Exhibition's
images were much more powerful and striking. But there are still so many photos at this year's exhibit that were amazing.
World Press Photo 2015 Photo Contest Exhibition is open daily from 9:00am to 9:00pm runs until October 20, closing at 6:00pm. Please visit World Press Photo Brookfield Place
for more information.
P.s!: This exhibit is free and open to the public! And if you can't make it, you can visit World Press Photo to view all the winning entries.
