Plan Your Visit

World Press Photo 13 is a photo exhibition that inspires an understanding of the world through creative and quality photojournalism.

This year, the exhibition contains over 150 photographs, including those captured during recent or ongoing conflicts. The latter builds upon the Museum’s display of post-Cold War conflict and underlines how these events continue to shape the world.

This exhibition is developed and circulated by World Press Photo and is presented at the Canadian War Museum in partnership with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon.

The Canadian War Museum is the second of five Canadian venues on the international tour.
