World Press Photo of the Year Winners

This post is also available in: French

The Caen Memorial celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, an opportunity to host a unique exhibition, in partnership with the World Press Photo Foundation. For the first time, the World Press Photo of the Year winners from the last 30 years are being presented together in one exhibition.
Each year for over 60 years, the World Press Photo Foundation has organized a prestigious professional photography contest, which rewards the best images by photographers from around the world.
The competition awards the work of professionals who use their creativity and talent to grasp or represent an event or topic that has marked the journalistic news of the year, through various categories such as contemporary issues (social, cultural or political) affecting individuals or societies, sport and the environment.
This exhibition allows the public to discover photos that recount news and history, highlighting the importance of these testimonials, and explaining under which circumstances these images were taken and, finally, why they were selected.
