WestLicht, The Location for Photography, will show the best press photographs in the world this year for the second time. Since 1955 an independent, international jury has chosen both individual photographs as well as photo series in nine categories – “Hard Facts,” “People in the Headlines,” “Portraits,” “Sport,” “Daily Life,” “Art,” “Nature and the Environment,” “Science and Technology,” and “Reporting.” 3,913 photographers from 118 countries have submitted their work. A total of 53,597 pictures were sent in, a record!
