Launch of world tour World Press Photo 14 at De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam (the Netherlands)
On Friday 18 April 2014 De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam opens World Press Photo 14, being the first venue of this year’s global exhibition tour annually following this international press photography contest. The exhibition consists of over 150 striking press photos of 53 winners, in the following nine categories: Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, General News, Spot News, Nature, Observed Portraits, Staged Portraits, Sports Action and Sports Feature. The visitor sets out on a photographic trip around the world covering all continents and a wide variety of themes and historical events of the year 2013. This year’s winner is John Stanmeyer (USA) with his entry Signal, shot for the National Geographic. This mystical image depicts African migrants on the shore of Djibouti city at night, raising their phones in an attempt to catch an inexpensive signal from neighbouring Somalia.
