World Press PhotoA free display of the best photographs submitted to the annual World Press Photo of the Year competition can be seen on Level 2 of the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall every year in November. Subject matters on display in this year's exhibition include images of events depicting war-torn territories, the ongoing refugee crisis, rallies protesting police brutality and displays of the power of nature such as an avalanche that swept over a Mount Everest basecamp as a result of 2015's Nepalese earthquake. The winning World Press Photo of the Year, taken by Australian freelance photographer Warren Richardson, shows refugees crossing the border from Serbia into Hungary before a secure fence on the border was completed.
