World Press Photo 17

14 April – 9 July 2017

Every year in De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam: World Press Photo. It’s the first stop on the worldwide tour of the international press photography contest. Over several weeks you can see the awe-inspiring press photos by prize winners from all over the world.

The World Press Photo exhibition was first held in Amsterdam in 1955. De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam hosted World Press Photo from 1982 to 1999 and hosts it again since 2014.

Digital Storytelling Contest
The winning entries in the Digital Storytelling Contest will be presented on large panels and screens in the middle of the exhibition in the sanctuary. The Digital Storytelling Contest was established in 2011 in recognition of journalism’s increasing use of moving images and the internet. De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam is supported by its founder BankGiro Loterij. World Press Photo receives support from the Nationale Postcode Loterij and its global sponsor, Canon. The exhibition in Amsterdam is sponsored by Delta Lloyd.
