The international fame of World Press Photo and the hundreds of thousands visitors that attend the exhibition every year, testify the power of image to transcend cultural and linguistic differences and reach a consistent and immediate level of communication. The exhibition presents the prizewinning photographs for each of the ten categories and travels worldwide to important museums and galleries; the only condition to be respected is to show every photo of the show without any form of censorship.In order to guarantee this, a representative of World Press Photo is in charge of supervising and directing the installation of the exhibition.
