World Press Photo 2018

28.04.18 - 27.05.18

The Venezuelan photographer Ronaldo Schemidt, of the France-Presse Agency, is the author of “Venezuela crisis”, the winning image of the 61 World Press Photo of the Year, an edition that saw 73.044 images entered in the competition by 4.548 photographers from 125 countries. The winning photo shows a young man fleeing, enveloped in flames caused by a Molotov cocktail in a riot in Caracas, Venezuela.

The two Spanish photographers Javier Arcenillas and Daniel Beltrá won third place in the categories of “Long-Term Projects” and “Environment” respectively, with “Latidoamerica” and “Amazonas: threatened paradise”.

Yet another year, Barcelona will be one of the first cities in the world to display the most important photojournalism exhibition worldwide and one of the few in disseminating the winning projects of the Digital Storytelling Contest.

Silvia Omedes, director of the Photographic Social Vision Foundation (the institution that organises the exhibition), highlights the increase in participation of national authors—specifically 229—and emphasises that thanks to the exhibition and its tour of more than 100 cities in 45 countries, the public has the possibility of enriching their points of view on the context and on current affairs and to access stories without censure or manipulation.
