World Press Photo is the largest and most prestigious international competition for the best reportage photography. From April 28 to June 12, Palazzo delle Esposizioni di Roma hosts World Press Photo 2022. If you decide to come to see it, you will not regret it. Each photo has a powerful story to tell.
The exhibition presents a national premiere of the finalist photos from the prestigious international photojournalism competition, which has been rewarding the best professional photographers every year since 1955. The names of the four global winners of the 2022 edition were announced on 7 April at 12 noon via the foundation’s online channels; for this 65th edition, global and regional juries made up of international experts examined the work of 64,823 photos and projects, submitted by 4,066 photographers from 130 countries.
Amber Bracken is the winner of the World Press Photo 2022 Photo of the Year. The shot, titled, Kamloops Residential School, shows a row of clothes hanging from wooden crosses along a road, in memory of indigenous children who died at the Kamloops Indian Residential School, following the discovery of 215 presumed unmarked graves that may belong to children who attended the school, in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.
The World Press Photo Story of the Year award went to Matthew Abbott for his story on indigenous Australians and their forest conservation practices. The other two new awards this year, the World Press Photo Long-Term Project Award and the World Press Photo Open Format Award, were won by Lalo de Almeida and Isadora Romero respectively.
