Sydney is one of the cities privileged to host the World Press photo exhibition, thanks to Canon Australia and the State Library of New South Wales.
As one would expect the bulk of the exhibition dealt with the two biggest news stories of last year, the Nepal earthquake and the plight of the refugees.
The exhibition was held at the State Library between 21 May and 19 June 2016.
Featured photo – Australian photographer Warren Richardson won the World Press Photo of the Year Award for this photo entitled- Hope For The Future.
