An eagerly awaited 17th edition 

Celebrating its 17th edition this year, the World Press Photo Montreal exhibition is one of the most popular in the world. To better meet public demand, for the second year running, the event will take place over six weeks instead of four, from August 28 to October 14, at the Bonsecours Market in Old Montreal. 

This year, the winning photos were selected from over 61,000 entries submitted by 3,851 photographers from 130 countries, for a total of 24 winning projects and six honorable mentions, as well as two special mentions by exceptional decision of the jury.  

The images cover themes ranging from the war between Israel and Hamas to the climate crisis and the family. The works invite viewers to step outside the news cycle and take an in-depth look at remarkable but little-known stories from around the world.

Various independent and specialized international juries have chosen the regional World Press Photo winners for 2024. Divided into four categories – Single Images, Series, Long-Term Projects and Free Format – the global winners will be announced on April 18 in Amsterdam.
