A yearly overview of the finest achievements in photojournalism, the Slovenia Press Photo – 2017 marks its eighth edition – is a national photography competition organised by the Institute for the Promotion of Photography and photographer Matej Leskovšek. This year, Cankarjev dom serves as its venue for the sixth time.
SPP acknowledges the importance of Slovenian press photography and promotes its public recognition in the knowledge that the photojournalists’ overriding goal is to cover diverse events and document soul-stirring stories in order to provide accurate information and elicit our sympathy and response to world events.
SPP awards and distinctions are presented in five categories: news, sports, nature and environment, people, culture and nature. An international jury selects the winner of the highest SSP award: Photography of the Year.
