Vision Mundial: Best Photojournalists of Latin America
Location: MMTH Gallery

The School of Journalism & Broadcasting is proud to present Visión Mundial: Latin America’s Best Photojournalists, a collection of 61 images taken by some of the leading photojournalists of Latin America. These riveting images from Latin America as well as around the globe represent a partial collection of the Pictures of The Year LATAM 2015 where a jury selects the best images from Latin American photojournalists. The 2015 San Miguel de Allende contest attracted more than 1,400 photojournalists to enter and close to 35,000 images and 168 multimedia stories were submitted.

POY Latam was created by Pablo Corral Vega and Loup Langton (Director of SJ&B) in 2011 to promote and celebrate excellence in documentary and artistic photography in Ibero-America and has become the largest and most prestigious contest of its kind.

The POY Latam contest takes place every two years.  The first one was judged in 2011 in Quito, Ecuador.  In 2013 the jury met in Fortaleza, Brazil, and in 2015 the judging took place in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  The judging is open to the public and webcast live.  A blog in Spanish, Portuguese and English engages audiences in worldwide conversations throughout the week of judging.  Juries have included such international luminaries as Mary Ellen Mark, Gary Knight, Tomás Munita, Cristina García Rodero, Pascal Maitre and Magdalena Herrera.

The not-for-profit contest has no entry fee to ensure that no talent is excluded based on an economic burden.  It’s supported by a wide-range of sponsors from across the Americas. 

The exhibition is free and will be on display until Friday, May 6, in Mass Media and Technology Hall Gallery.

The gallery is open:

Sundays  3 to 9 pm CDT

Mondays through Wednesdays 9 am  to  9 pm CDT

Thursdays and Fridays 9 am to 5 pm CDT
