Image of Assignments 2019: British Press Photographers

The BPPA's 'Assignments' exhibitions have proved to be hugely popular since their launch, with the exhibitions continuing to motivate their peers and captivate the public's eye. Each year the exhibitions have been held in stunning galleries across the country. All images in the shows are shot by BPPA members within just one year, with members covering a multitude of assignments both at home in the UK and worldwide from wars, riots to world cups, red carpets and country fairs. The images are recorded through the eyes of these professional visual story tellers - and yet most of us seldom get such an opportunity to view these extraordinary images, other than on newsprint or on the screeen of a mobile device. 'Assignments' is a rare chance to see the very best in British press photography, all displayed in one unique gallery, curated by some of the most highly-respected leaders within the media industry.

Bradford Museums and Galleries are proud to announce the introduction of AppEar; a new system to help the visually impaired explore our collections. This year we have been working closely with RNIB and Bradford Talking Media to develop the use of the audio PenFriend devices, which are already widely used within the visually impaired community. Visitors can now borrow a PenFriend from our reception desk to hear visual descriptions of the surrounding displays.
