Swiss Press Photo 17 is an exhibition showing the best Swiss press photographs from the previous year, in this case 2016. As well as capturing the key events from 2016 the exhibition offers an individual perspective of news that unfolded, events which happened and from these an international jury selects the best photographs and chooses the winning pictures in six categories: News, Daily Life, Swiss Stories, People, Sports and World.
