For well over 50 years the WPPE has encouraged and acknowledged the very highest standards in professional photojournalism with WPPE 12 presenting the winning images selected from 101,254 pictures entered by 5,247 photographers representing 124 nationalities.

The overall winning photo is by Spanish photographer, Samuel Aranda, taken in Yemen on assignment for The New York Times. The picture is of a woman holding her wounded son in her arms, inside a mosque used as a field hospital by demonstrators against the rule of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, during clashes in Sanaa, Yemen on 15 October 2011.

The New Zealand Netherlands Foundation are delighted to be bringing WPPE 12 to the Hawke’s Bay after a decade of very successful exhibitions in Wellington.

With excellent support from Napier City Council, Rabobank, The Dominion Post, Napier Mail, Hastings Mail and Hawke’s Bay Country Scene making it possible to present this season in Napier which will be open to the public October 4 – 28, 2012.

Another special dimension of WPPE 12 will be the Charity Partner relationship with Save the Children New Zealand who are actively involved in many of the countries depicted in the Exhibition.
