Hong Kong will soon get a first-hand look at some of the world’s best visual journalism as selected in the latest World Press Photo annual photography competition. The World Press Photo Exhibition 2020 showcases works from among almost 74,000 entries submitted by over 4,200 photographers from 125 countries.
The Koo Ming Kown Gallery at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) in Kowloon Tong will host the exhibition from March 1-21, 2021. The exhibition features single images and photo stories which an independent jury selected for honors in eight categories, namely Contemporary Issues, General News, Environment, Nature, Long-Term Projects, Portraits, Spot News, and Sports.
The travelling exhibition is brought to Hong Kong with the generous support of the Netherlands Consulate General in Hong Kong and the HKBU Institute for Journalism and Society. Admission is free. Enhanced hygiene and social-distancing protocols will be in place, including compulsory use of face masks and temperature checks.
