World Press Photo 2011 Exhibition

Attracting over two and a half million people each year in over 100 locations, the world’s most prestigious annual exhibition of photojournalism visits Brisbane for the fourth year running.


The 54th annual World Press Photo exhibition profiles the globe’s top press photographers and showcases the world’s best press photos of 2010. World Press Photo is the leading international competition in press photography. In 2010 the competition received a record 108,059 entries from 5,691 professional photographers from 125 countries.

The international jury awarded prizes across nine theme categories to 54 photographers, including three Australians: Daniel Berehulak, Steve Christo and Adam Pretty. The prestigious World Press Photo of the Year was awarded to South African photographer Jodi Bieber for a portrait of Bibi Aisha, an 18-yearold woman from Afghanistan, who after fleeing her husband’s house complaining of violent treatment, had the Taliban arrive and take her back to her husband’s family for punishment. Jodi Bieber has previously won eight World Press Photo awards and her exhibition, Las Canas, was presented at Brisbane Powerhouse in 2009.

Jury member Vince Aletti said: ‘We are able to see the conditions… the images respond to our curiosity in a vivid way.’

Warning: This exhibition contains images that may offend. Recommended for people aged 15 years and older. World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon and TNT
