The Stories That Matter: a special event

The World Press Photo Foundation and De Nieuwe Kerk present The Stories that Matter – a talks program reflecting on today’s pressing topics through the eyes of photojournalists and critical thinkers.

This event brings together the public with the 2023 Contest winning photographers, who come from 23 different countries, from Morocco to the Philippines, Ecuador to Ukraine, and Armenia to Mexico. Throughout the day, they will showcase their work in the exhibition and engage in conversation with the audience.

On the talks stage, international speakers, thinkers and doers will explore, discuss and analyze the climate crisis, conflict and social justice; and in the social space, photobook experts will host a workshop on what makes a good photobook.

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

Doors open at 11:00.
Please note, the full program will be conducted in English.
