World Press Photo 2017 - Oldenburg - Backstage

World Press Photo 2017: Behind The Scenes Of The Exhibition In Oldenburg

The worldwide touring World Press Photo exhibition stops in about 100 cities and returned to Oldenburg this year. As usual, the best press photos of the world were shown at the Landesmuseum für Kunst und Kulturgeschichte, but in 2018 the exhibition was designed in a more interactive way than usual: Under the hashtag #wppol, visitors of the exhibition were able to publish their views on the World Press Photo 17 exhibition.

If you look for Instagram after the hash day, you will not only find Guest of Honour Francis Pérez, who is making a selfie in the castle hall, but there are also photographs showing how the pictures of the World Press Photo 17 exhibition are delivered and how the rooms are furnished accordingly. Below we have put together the best moments for you:

Finally, are you following us on Instagram?! And which of the photos of this year's World Press Photo Award did you like most? We look forward to your feedback in the comments.
