Some powerful and heart breaking photos are in the annual press photography contest displayed in Brookfield Place at 181 Bay Street in Toronto. The traveling photo exhibit is free to visit and will be in Allen Lambert Galleria from September 30 to October 21.

"For over 55 years the World Press Photo contest has encouraged the highest standards in photojournalism. The contest creates a bridge linking the professionals with the general public. As the announcement of the winners makes headlines around the world, so the inspirational role of photojournalism is highlighted to an audience of hundreds of millions. All the prize-winning photographs are assembled into an exhibition that travels to 45 countries over the course of a year, and published in our yearbook. Over two million people go to a hundred different venues to see the images, and our yearbook is published in seven languages and distributed worldwide."
