The world’s best press photos will go on display at the Raffles Hotel from today until the end of March.
Dubbed the Oscars of photojournalism, the World Press Photo exhibition will feature 154 award-winning photographs by 54 top photographers.
These were judged to be the best out of 103,481 images submitted by 5,666 photographers.
The Straits Times is the official media partner of the exhibition, which last came to Singapore in 2006. This year, Singapore is the last stop for the roving exhibition, which has travelled to 45 countries so far.
Admission is free, and visitors can download an audio app for a virtual tour of the photos on display. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
