Capturing imagination. Changing lives. The World Press Photo exhibition, billed as the "Oscars" of photojournalism, returns to Singapore at the National Museum from October 6 to 28, 2018.

As one of the world's most prestigious photography contests, the exhibition showcases 161 prize-winning photographs that capture the most powerful, poignant and provocative news images from around the world.

The 2018 global contest drew more than 73,000 submissions from 4,548 photographers across 125 countries. Of these, the jury awarded prizes to 42 photographers from 22 countries, including Australia, Bangladesh, and China.

FCA journalists are invited to the Singapore launch of the World Press Photo 2018 exhibition on October 5, which will be held as a cocktail reception at the National Museum of Singapore; as well as a panel discussion with the three award-winning photographers on October 19.
