Win tickets to World Press Photo

01_John Stanmeyer The annual exhibition of the world's most impressive photojournalism comes to Auckland this weekend, and D-Photo has 10 double passes to give away to lucky readers.

The 2014 World Press Photo exhibition opens at Smith and Caughey's Queen Street gallery this Saturday, July 5, and runs until July 27.

The travelling exhibition is the most prestigious collection of international current affairs photography, with more than 5700 photographers involved in this year’s contest, submitting almost 100,000 photographs.

This year the competition was won by John Stanmeyer with the image featured here, of African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their cellphone in the air to try to gain reception from neighbouring Somalia.

Admission to the event costs $10 for adults and $5 for students (plus group bookings are available) – but 10 lucky D-Photo readers can come along free of charge as we have 10 double passes to the exciting exhibition to give away.

For your chance to win simply head to our Facebook page and tell us what your favourite World Press Photo image is, from this or any other year, and why. Extra points for posting the image to our page, but a humble comment will still get you in the draw.
