Postponing the World Press Photo exhibition in Aleppo, Syria

Amsterdam, 9 October 2019

Because we are committed to connecting the stories with as much of the world as possible, we often work in challenging places and that means there are lots of issues to consider.

After taking further advice on the current situation in Syria, which is changing daily, we have concluded that it is currently not feasible to display our special exhibition in Aleppo.

The exhibition featuring a selection of awarded work between 2017-2019 was scheduled to be showcased from 20 October to 15 December 2019. We will put our current plans on hold and assess later when and how we can bring the exhibition back, together with our local exhibition partner, Le Pont Gallery.
