Newspapers photographers are some of the most talented of visual artists who go to extraordinary lengths to capture history as it is being made.

Everything from wars and riots to world cups and red carpets is recorded through the eyes of these visual story tellers - and yet most of us rarely get an opportunity to see these extraordinary images other than printed on newspaper or on the screen of a mobile phone.

Assignments is a once a year chance to see the best of these images - as chosen by The British Press Photographers Association - and to appreciate some of the great pictures taken by UK photojournalists.

Assignments 2019 runs from 17th to 19th May at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf.
