The 16th World Press Photo Montreal exhibition, which showcases the honorees of the world’s most prestigious annual photography competition, opened its doors to the public at Bonsecours Market on Wednesday, August 30, at 10 a.m. The event runs daily until October 15, Sunday to Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to midnight.
Exhibition extended to six weeks
The emblematic back-to-school event has been extended by two weeks. The World Press Photo Montreal exhibition also offers an enhanced experience, thanks to renovations carried out by the Bonsecours Market team in the updated Salle de la Commune, which has been given a more contemporary look. Of note are better accessibility for people with reduced mobility, the addition of an extra exhibition space, and the installation of a large-format backlit display, this year featuring an image by photographer Evgeniy Maloletka, crystallizing the impact of the siege of Mariupol, Ukraine.

Available on-site during event opening hours, tickets are available at the following rates: $15 (+ tax) general entry; $12 (+ tax) for seniors and students; free for children under 10.
