Welcome to the Press Photographer of the Year Exhibition 2020. For the first time in 42 years the PPAI exhibition is unable to embark on its nationwide tour, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions. To continue the tradition we welcome you to our very first ‘virtual exhibition’. You can view the exhibition here in Gallery or in Video mode.

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 and has been enjoyed by millions of viewers over four decades of touring. It is also a regular visitor to festivals, libraries and locations around Ireland. Across nine categories, including News, Daily Life, Nature and Environment, Sport and Reportage, the exhibition provides a fascinating snapshot of Ireland through 2019.
