For the first time our annual festival will be held at Amsterdam’s Westergasterrein – a new location chosen to offer our visitors a richer program with more exciting opportunities to discover the best in photojournalism and visual storytelling. Visitors can expect a varied program including workshops, meetups, and presentations with award-winning visual journalists and special guests, along with the renowned Sem Presser Lecture, supported by DuPho. The flagship World Press Photo Exhibition 2018, displaying prize-winners’ work from the photo and digital storytelling contests, will premier at De Nieuwe Kerk during the festival before starting its world tour, giving festival ticket holders the chance to be among the very first to discover the exhibition.
