The Press Photographers Awards Exhibition 2021

 

The Press Photographer of the Year Awards Exhibition 2021

Now in their forty-third year the PPAI Awards this year have an added poignancy and resonance, reflecting and recording a truly momentous year in the history of the State. 

Nobody could have predicted, at the start of 2020, the cataclysmic impact that the Covid-19 pandemic would have on Irish lives and society but, as ever, the members of the PPAI have fulfilled their role, producing an indelible record which will form part of the national visual archive. 

Over the years this showcase of the finest Irish press photography has travelled across the globe and been displayed in Irish festivals in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Paris, Brussels and Warsaw, enjoyed by millions of viewers over four decades of touring. It is also a regular visitor to festivals, libraries and locations around Ireland. 

Spanning nine categories, including News, Daily Life, Nature and Environment, Sport, Portrait, Politics, Arts and Entertainment and Reportage, this collection of winning and short-listed photographs provides a fascinating window into Ireland through 2020.

Paul Sherwood, PPAI President and James Crombie, the PPAI’s Press Photographer of the Year will be in attendance on opening night to give a presentation. 

 

The exhibition runs from Monday, 16th August to Sunday, 29th August.

Opening Hours:

Weekdays: 10.00am – 8.00pm | Weekends: 12.00pm – 5.00pm
