This fall Hot Docs is pleased to present the prestigious World Press Photo 09 exhibition from October 6 - 24 at the Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place, Toronto.

The exhibition features the prize winners of the World Press Photo Foundation's annual worldwide photojournalism contest. Each February an independent jury of 13 experts, selected from photojournalists, agencies and magazines from around the world, gather in Amsterdam to select the winning images in 10 categories and to name the World Press Photo of the Year. This year a record number of participants - 5508 photographers representing 124 nationalities - submitted a total of 96,268 images for consideration.
