The annual World Press Photo Contest recognizes and celebrates the best photojournalism and documentary photography produced over the last year. In this projection, you will be presented with the winners of the 2023 Contest. Representing major news events and important moments overlooked by the mainstream media in 2022, the winning works call attention to some of the most pressing issues facing the world today – from the devastating documentation of the war in Ukraine and historic protests in Iran, to the realities in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, and the many faces of the climate crisis in countries ranging from Morocco to Australia to Peru to Kazakhstan. The text will be shown in both English and Greek.
This projection will be introduced by Anita Huynh, Programs and Outreach Manager at World Press Photo, Alkis Konstantinidis, winner of the Singles category in the Europe region, and César Dezfuli, winner of the Open Format category in the Europe region.
