World Press PhotoThe annual World Press Photo of the Year exhibition, a free display on Level 2 of the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, contains the short-listed entries for the prestigious prize awarded to the best candidates working in the field of photojournalism.

Now in its 57th year, the competition winners are selected from over 100,000 images submitted by more than 5,000 photographers from over 120 different countries. The subjects portrayed summarise the key moments of the last year, reminding us of the highs and lows twelve months can bring.
