Palazzo delle Esposizioni hosts 2019 World Press Photo Contest.

25 April-26 May. Each year an independent jury at the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam selects images for this prestigious recognition of international photojournalism.

The exhibition includes the winning entries in each of the various categories as well as the winner of Photo of the Year.

Rome's Palazzo delle Esposizioni showcases the work of the 43 nominees, from 25 countries, for the 2019 World Press Photo Contest.

This year the competition adds a major new award: the World Press Photo Story of the Year, honouring the photographer whose "visual creativity and skills produced a story with excellent editing and sequencing that captures or represents an event or issue of great journalistic importance in 2018."
