Investec to sponsor the exhibition in London

The 2011 World Press Photo exhibition in London has a new sponsor helping to bring the award-winning images to the United Kingdom’s capital city. Investec, the international specialist bank and asset manager, will sponsor the exhibition, which opens to the public on 11 November.

Describing the sponsorship, Bernard Kantor, Managing Director of Investec, said, "Investec is proud to sponsor the London presentation of the World Press Photo Exhibition, a unique showcase for talent, creativity and in some cases extreme bravery.  The powerful images take us out of our comfort zone and allow us to reflect and learn from our mistakes. The photographers who make up this exhibition deserve our thanks, for showing us such diversity in life and for reminding us to never take anything for granted".

The exhibition will be on display at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall through 29 November. More information about the exhibition can be found here.
