Turin, World Press Photo 2021 returns to Palazzo Madama

Pandemic situation permitting, the World Press Photo 2021 finalist photo exhibition will return to Turin's Palazzo Madama in late April.

At the end of April, if the pandemic situation allows, the exhibition of the finalist photos of the World Press Photo 2021, now in its 65th edition, will return to Turin’s Palazzo Madama.

The photos have been divided into eight sections: Contemporary Issues, Environment, General News, Long-Term Projects, Nature, Portraits, Sports, Spot News; as every year, the World Press Photo of the Year 2021 and the World Press Photo Story of the Year 2021 will also be awarded among the selected photos. These, together with the top three in each category, will then be exhibited at the World Press Photo Exhibition 2021, which will be held, for the second year in a row, at Palazzo Madama and in one hundred other cities, in 45 countries around the world.

In January 2021, the judging of the World Press Photo 2021 competition took place online for the first time, with seven specialized juries chaired by NayanTara Gurung Kakshapati and Muyi Xiao selecting the best images and stories for each of the competition’s eight categories. This year as many as 4,315 photographers from 130 countries submitted 74,470 images.

Among the 2021 finalists are three Italians: Lorenzo Tugnoli (Category: World Press Photo of the year - Spot news stories), Antonio Faccilongo (Story of the year - Long term project) and Gabriele Galimberti (Portraits stories).

The names of the winners will be announced on April 15. Meanwhile, until the opening of the exhibition, the finalist photos will be presented on the Facebook page and Instagram profile of World Press Photo Torino.
