Barcelona's 13th edition of the World Press Photo exhibition is here. Organised in the city by the Photographic Social Vision Foundation, the show features photos that have been given this prestigious international award for photojournalism. The migration crisis is still present in this year's edition, as are political conflicts, human mobility and the influence of technology on connectivity and information trafficking, as well as the impact of humans on the environment.

From a local point of view, among the winners are Spanish photographers Santi Palacios, who won second prize in the General News category, and Francis Pérez and Jaime Rojo, awarded first and third prize, respectively, in the Nature category. German photojournalist Daniel Etter, who lives in and works out of Barcelona, took home third prize in the Contemporary Issues category.
