Iraq has hosted an exhibition of World Press Photo images for the first time this year, after being the dramatic subject of the annual competition's prize-winning images so often in the past. The "Best of Three Years" show has featured 142 images from the 2017-19 contests at three venues across Iraq and its Kurdistan region: Baghdad's Mansour Mall, Irbil's citadel and Sulaimaniyah's Bakhi Gshty public park, where the exhibition draws to a close next week.Each year, an exhibition of winning images from the annual competition travels to over 100 cities in 45 countries, attracting over 4 million visitors, according to the WPP website. In the exhibition's more than 60 years, Iraq has never hosted one of them.
