World Press Photo Exhibition 2022

On Friday 15 April, the World Press Photo Exhibition 2022 will open to the public in De Nieuwe Kerk. This Flagship Exhibition will be on display until 14 August 2022. The annual World Press Photo Contest recognizes and celebrates the best photojournalism and documentary photography produced over the last year.

Following the World Press Photo Foundation’s new strategy and to offer a more global and better geographic balance of perspectives, this year’s Contest is divided into six regions (Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central America, South America and Southeast Asia and Oceania) and four categories (Singles, Stories, Long-Term Projects and Open Format). The 24 winners resulting from this were chosen by an independent specialist jury from and/or working in that region. Out of these 24 regional winners, four global winners were also chosen – the World Press Photo of the Year, the World Press Photo Story of the Year, the World Press Photo Long-Term Project Award, and the World Press Photo Open Format Award.

The World Press Photo Exhibition 2022 is on show from 15 April. Buy your tickets online.
