The Stories That Matter

The World Press Photo Foundation and De Nieuwe Kerk present The Stories That Matter – exploring the issues and narratives shaping our world through the eyes of photojournalists and critical thinkers.

Meet the awarded photographers and hear the stories behind the 2024 World Press Photo Contest winning projects in a day of talks, workshops and performances, taking place amongst the World Press Photo Exhibition 2024 at De Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam.

Throughout the day, the 2024 Contest winning photographers, who come from 26 different countries, from Tunisia to Brazil, Japan to Ukraine, and Palestine to Indonesia, will each speak about their work in the Exhibition and engage in conversation with the audience.

They will be joined by other international speakers, makers, thinkers and doers on the main stage and across our workshop spaces to explore and discuss crucial topics impacting our world today.

Join us for this thought-provoking and inspiring day that illuminates the stories that matter.
