If you are a news-o-phile, a keen photographer, or just love looking at great photographs then the World Press Photo Exhibition should be on your todo list.
Get to the State Library of NSW in Sydney before the end of May to see over 200 of the world's best media photographic images which have been chosen as the winners of the 2009 World Press Photo contest.
As listed in the World Press Photo website there are 10 categories to the contest which include:
“Spot news, General news, People in the news, Sports action, Sports features, Contemporary issues, Daily life, Portraits, Arts & entertainment and Nature.“
Many of the photographs are horrific, harrowing and horrendous but also others, such as the Portraits, are quite entertaining.
