True stories, authentic images of the past year

Authentic images and stories have never been more in demand. The exhibition reveals important knowledge about contemporary reality, showcases stories that encourage the viewer to pause, identify and reflect. This annually held display introduces visitors to stories that would normally slip their attention. The 151 images on view were selected by an international jury from 73,996 photos. Shown at 120 venues across the world, this travelling exhibition is seen by over four million people. The Hungarian display, held for the past two years at the Hungarian National Museum, was the second most visited show in the world. There is a Hungarian award-winner again, with Esther Horvath getting the 1st Prize in the Environmental Single category.
