About the event

What happened the moment before the picture was taken? Which dangers did the photographer have to face? What story does the picture want to tell us? During the guided tour we’ll delve deeper into the stories behind the images, the photographers that took them and the contest in which they have received awards.

World Press Photo is the world’s biggest international press photography contest. This year 4,548 photographers from 125 countries submitted 73,044 images. A total of 42 photographers from 22 countries received awards in eight categories. The exhibition shows the 160+ winning images.
