Celebrating powerful, moving and sometimes disturbing photojournalism, the annual World Press Photo competition draws entries from all over the world. This year 5,963 photographers representing more than 130 different nationalities submitted not far short of 100,000 images. The resulting exhibition of 140 winning and shortlisted shots is shown in 45 countries, with the London leg of the tour taking place at the Royal Festival Hall. The sumbmissions cover a kaleidoscopic subject matter; the often haunting images cover everything from homophobia in Russia to the ebola crisis. The focus and scope of this free show – from the political to the personal – makes it an essential snapshot of the moment we live in.
