An exhibition featuring a selection of photographs from the Istanbul Photo Awards 2021, an international news photography competition, is being held at the UN headquarters, Anadolu News Agency reports.

After the event's opening at the Turkevi Centre, or Turkish House, in New York City, the annual exhibition was opened to the public on 20 October at the UN headquarters for the fifth time.

As many as 40 photographs covering major events around the world over the past year are being exhibited until Friday.

They include entries and winners of the awards' news photography category, ranging from snapshots of the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on human life to disasters, such as the August 2020 Beirut port blast.

The seventh edition of the awards and exhibition are both organised by Anadolu Agency, with Turkish Airlines and the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) as official partners.

More information on the awards and winning photos can be found on the event's website, www.istanbulphotoawards.com
