The 8 categories this year are Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, General News, Long-Term Projects, Nature, People, Sports, and Spot News. Equally diverse are the nationalities of the photographers and their photos covering topics all across the globe.

The 45 images are displayed throughout the foyers of the Brisbane Powerhouse and downstairs in the Turbine Studio.

Situated right beside the river; a visit to the Brisbane Powerhouse and the World Press Photo 2016, would make for a relaxing and thought provoking afternoon. You could combine it with a picnic at New Farm park next door or a relaxing afternoon at Bar Alto or Watt Restaurant or with another event at the Powerhouse.
