World Press Photo Exhibition 2019 - (Nov. 10th)

All Ages
Join us for the World Press Photo Exhibition 2019, displaying the most powerful and thought-provoking press photography of the previous year

The powerful World Press Photo Exhibition represents the best visual journalism of the past year. It is seen by 4 million people in 100 major cities across the globe. This is photojournalism at its best and most thought-provoking.

Images explore a wide range of topics including everything from migration and press freedom to diplomacy and gender identity, from conflict to fashion and Paralympic sports to climate change.

The exhibition will be on display at the Dupont Underground, a massive abandoned trolley station under Dupont Circle. It houses 21 projectors casting 13' images of the year's most important stories, a wall of large prints of WPP prize-winning photographs and a retrospective of over 60 years of Photos of the Year.


The DC Rotary Club's World Press Photo Committee cordially invites you to a festival style event featuring 2019 Photo of the Year Winner John Moore. His haunting image "Girl Crying On the Border" captured the human impact of the migration and border security debate. New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi, will discuss the image, the story and it’s impact with Moore on the main stage.

We continue the conversation around Rotary’s theme of “Service above self” with Margaret Dimond. Her work driving supplies from the DC area to the U.S.-Mexico border was recently covered in an article in the Washington Post.

Between speakers, view this year's incredible World Press Photo exhibition while enjoying chamber music by Sarah Ramson.
