Insights from leaders in the profession.

World Press Photo lectures and presentations give an audience the opportunity to hear the stories and experience of photographers, photo editors and other leaders in the field as they talk about their work, lives and share their wisdom with their listeners. In order to spread their thoughts beyond the confines of four walls, we record these lectures for our online audience, to share with a wide international audience.

The Sem Presser Lecture is given every year during the Awards Days weekend in Amsterdam, a gathering to celebrate the year's prize-winning photographers. The Joop Swart Lecture is held during the annual masterclass and delivered by one of the visiting masters.
