World Press Photo Festival


The World Press Photo Festival 2018 will take place in Amsterdam on 13-14 April.

For the first time our annual festival will be held at Amsterdam’s Westergasfabriek - a new location chosen to offer our visitors a richer program with more exciting opportunities to discover the best in visual journalism and storytelling.

Visitors can expect a varied program of presentations, workshops and meetups featuring special guests including award-winning visual journalists, along with the renowned Sem Presser Lecture, supported by DuPho.

The flagship World Press Photo Exhibition 2018, displaying prize-winners’ work from the photo and digital storytelling contests, will premier at De Nieuwe Kerk during the festival before starting its world tour, giving festival ticket holders the chance to be among the very first to discover the exhibition.

The brand new 2018 Yearbook will be launched and available to buy for the first time at the festival site and De Nieuwe Kerk.
