The real value of the World Press Photo
World Press Photo is most known of its prestigious award. It’s where World Press Photo started, as spin off of the Zilveren Camera, the award for Dutch photojournalists. Through the years however World Press Photo has developed into an organization to support photojournalists and photojournalism worldwide. It organizes workshops and debates and does research on the developments in photojournalism and visual storytelling. The traveling exhibition does not only celebrate the winning photographs, it also shows a broad audience the value of photojournalism and what is going on in the world. Nevertheless, the contest and its award is the base of World Press Photo and it gives opportunities for the winning photographers. The Awards Days, held last week in Amsterdam, shows it again and this year even better than the previous years.
