The World Press Photo 2019 Exhibition is being held in Rome at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni from the 25th April to the 26th May 2019 as the Italian premiere exhibition. The World Press Photo is one of the most important awards in the field of photojournalism. Every year, for over 60 years, an independent jury of international experts, is called upon to express themselves on thousands of requests sent to the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam by photojournalists from around the world. This year, the contest saw 4,738 photographers from 129 countries enter 78,801 images. The World Press Photo of the Year honours the photographer whose visual creativity and skills create a picture that captures or represents an event or issue of great journalistic importance in that year. The winning image Crying Girl on the Border by John Moore shows Honduran toddler Yanela Sanchez crying as she and her mother, Sandra Sanchez, are taken into custody by US border officials in McAllen, Texas, USA, on 12 June 2018.
