The World Press Photo Foundation believes in the power of showing and the importance of seeing high-quality visual stories.
For six decades, the World Press Photo Foundation has been working from its home in Amsterdam as an independent, nonprofit organization. In that time, the world has changed continuously, and new developments in the media and technology have transformed journalism and storytelling. Our mission has expanded, and we draw on our experience to guide visual journalists, storytellers, and audiences around the world through this challenging and exciting landscape.
Our purpose is to connect the world to the stories that matter.
The World Press Photo Foundation would like to partner with local organizations interested in organizing the World Press Photo exhibition in Jan/March 2021 to 2023. Together, they would also organize lectures, workshops for students and the general public and the Joop Swart Masterclass for emerging photographers.
They are looking for cultural organizations, NGOs, museums or government institutions working on, for instance: visual journalism, press freedom, storytelling, cultural education, student engagement, and cultural promotion.
