Photo editor and curator Yumi Goto will be in town for the official opening of the World Press Photo 2016 exhibition tomorrow.

The Japanese photo curator, who is based in Tokyo, was part of the five-person jury who picked the winning pictures in the News and Documentary category of the World Press Photo 2017 contest.

The results were announced recently.

Goto, 50, will share her experience as a judge and talk about her work as a curator and an independent photo documentary/reportage project researcher, coordinator and consultant on Friday at 6.30pm at the National Museum of Singapore.

This will be followed by a panel discussion by photojournalists Warren Richardson, Kazuma Obara and Goto on the topic, Photojournalism In The Age Of New Media, moderated by The Straits Times executive photojournalist Neo Xiaobin.
