World Press Photo Exhibition

Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm
The World Press Photo Exhibition 2021, presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane Airport, showcases the best visual journalism of the past year.
Attracting 4,315 photographers from 130 countries who submitted 74,470 images, this coveted award is the world’s leading contest for professional press photographers, photo journalists, and documentary photographers.
In 2021, the highly-anticipated exhibition will be even more poignant, following an unprecedented year marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and social justice protests around the globe. The nominees share a diversity of interpretations and perspectives to these and other urgent issues such as the climate crisis, transgender rights, and territorial conflicts.
