Event Details

Usain Bolt crossing the finish line at the 2016 Rio Olympics; a woman standing her ground at a rally against police violence against black men in Louisiana; and a carpet of monarch butterflies covering the forest floor at a butterfly sanctuary in Mexico, are three powerful images set to feature in a free exhibition, on display at the Scottish Parliament this August.

The World Press Photo exhibition showcases over 140 of the most moving, challenging and thought provoking examples of photojournalism from across the world, taken over the course of 2016. 

The worldwide touring exhibition of award-winning photos will once again come to the Scottish Parliament from Friday 4 August – Saturday 26 August 2017, and entry is free.

The photo contest attracted entries from over 5,000 photographers from 125 countries, telling contemporary stories from categories including Spot News, General News, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, People, Sports, Nature and Long Term Projects.
