Fans of visual images can catch one of the most powerful and iconic exhibitions of photojournalism.

Fans of visual images on cheap flights to Brisbane will be able to catch one of the most powerful and iconic exhibitions of photojournalism.

The annual World Press Photo exhibition, now in its 54th year, will showcase some of the most amazing pictures captured in the field in 2010.

This is the fourth year running that it has been held in Brisbane.

Last year the competition received a mammoth and record 108,059 entries from 5,691 professional photographers from 125 countries.

Awarded by an international jury, 54 photographers – including three Australians – won awards across nine categories.

Jodi Bieber, a South African photographer, won the top prize of World Press Photo of the Year for her candid portrait of Bibi Aisha, an 18-year-old woman who was tortured by the Taliban.

When she won the award, Bieber said: “I’m thrilled. I’m totally surprised – there was an earthquake in Haiti last year, also it was a highly controversial image.”

The exhibition runs from June 4th to June 26th.
