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