On Thursday, 12 February 2015, the World Press Photo of the Year 2014 will be crowned in Amsterdam. Every year, the World Press Photo Foundation organises the largest and most prestigious photo competition in the world. Thousands of professional photographers from all over the world submit their best work. An independent international jury, chaired by Michele McNally (head of picture editing at The New York Times), selects the winning photos in nine categories and chooses one image as Press Photo of the Year. All the winning images will then go on a touring exhibition through 45 countries and to around 100 cities worldwide, impressing countless visitors.
From 7 May to 31 May 2015, Keystone will present World Press Photo 15 at the Folium in Sihlcity in Zurich as one of the first stops on the worldwide tour. The exhibition will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Friday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.) for all interested parties. In addition, guided tours as well as supporting events will take place.
