All Ateneo-ACFJ alumni are invited to the opening of the World Press Photo Exhibition to be held at The Podium Mall at the Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong City on Friday, August 1, 2008, at 6:00pm.

ACFJ hosts the exhibit, which will showcase 200 of the best news photographs taken in 2007. More than 5,000 news photographers all over the world submitted a total of over 80,000 entries.

The exhibit is the latest collaboration between the Amsterdam-based World Press Photo and ACFJ. Their first joint project was the Diploma in Photojournalism, a certificate course offered by ACFJ to working and aspiring photojournalists

The ACFJ was launched during a press conference held recently. The sponsors include the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Unilever Philippines and SM Malls. The exhibit will be shown in three SM malls–The Podium, Mall of Asia, and The Block from August 1 to 22.
