Vernissage, August 28, 2008

On August 28th 2008 the exhibition WORLD PRESS PHOTO 08 opened with three awarded photographers present. More than 500 guests came to the opening and were fascinated by the expressive pictures. We are also very happy about the immense media coverage of the exhibition. Tarek Leitner moderated the opening and Jeroen Visser gave the Laudation and the opening speech was held by DI Peter Baldauf, head of canon Austria.
