The World's most powerful images set to premiere in Auckland Exhibition. Poignant moments captured in a thought-provoking collection of the world's most powerful images of 2014 to be showcased at the Auckland premiere of the internationally-renowned World Press Photo Exhibition.

This traveling exhibition, unique in its kind, is the result of a worldwide annual contest of press photography and is brought to Auckland by The Rotary Club of Auckland.

The World Press Photo competition is the world’s leading contest for professional press photographers, photojournalists and documentary photographers, setting the standard for the profession. This year’s competition drew entries from 5,692 photographers from 131 countries. A total of 97,912 images were entered in the contest.

A group of internationally recognized professionals in the fields of photojournalism and documentary photography convened in Amsterdam in February to judge all entries. The jury gave 45 prizes in eight themed categories to 41 photographers of 17 nationalities from: Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, China, Denmark, Eritrea, France, Germany, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, UK and USA.

The exhibition comprises 134 photographs and promises to be as engaging and thought provoking as ever - with the winning images bringing attention to issues and events from 2014, ever year thousands of people throughout the world seek out the exhibition to engage with it. An exhibition definitely not-to-be-missed!
