Rome hosts World Press Photo Exhibition 2024

World Press Photo Exhibition at Pala Expo.

Rome hosts an exhibition dedicated to the 2024 edition of World Press Photo at Palazzo delle Esposizioni on Via Nazionale from 8 May to 9 June.

The show presents a national preview of the winning images of the international photojournalism competition which awards the best professional photographers every year since 1955.

The 2024 Photo of the Year goes to Mohammed Salem for his image of a Palestinian woman cradling the body of her five-year-old niece who was killed, along with her mother and sister, when an Israeli missile struck their home in Khan Younis, Gaza.

The winning Story of the Year is by Lee-Ann Olwage for her images of Paul Rakotozandriny, ‘Dada Paul’ (91), who has lived with dementia for 11 years and is cared for by his daughter at home in Madagascar.

The Long-Term Project Award goes to Alejandro Cegarra for his photos charting the hardship of Mexican, Venezuelan and Haitian migrants and asylum seekers.

Winner of the Open Format Award is Julia Kochetova for a project that weaves together photographic images with poetry, audio clips and music charting the war in Ukraine.

Each year an independent jury at the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam selects images for this prestigious recognition of international photojournalism, with winners chosen in eight categories including general news, sports, the environment and portraits.

The 67th annual World Press Photo Contest drew more than 60,000 entries from 3,581 photographers from 130 different countries.
