Your chance to view this year’s winning images from one of the most prestigious photography contests in the world – The World Press exhibition is on again in Wellington from August 13 to September 6.

If you haven’t been before, it is well worth checking out. The images are stunning, sometimes shocking, and usually thought-provoking. I try to make sure I attend each year. But get in early to beat the crowds!
