As a partner of the World Press Photo Foundation, Stichting Daguerre is organising the World Press Photo Exhibition 2021 in Rotterdam, in July 2021. The exhibition presents the winners of the annual photo competition – the work that contributed most to visual journalism in the past year. Whether it's single shots or series, these photos are judged with respect to their accurate, honest and visually appealing look at our world.
The competition is divided into categories and is judged by a jury of leading photojournalism professionals. The award-winning photos are compiled in an exhibition that travels to 45 countries, and is viewed annually by more than four million people.
Because we believe in the power of showing and the importance of seeing high-quality visual stories, we are committed to sharing them with the widest possible audience. By organising the World Press Photo exhibition in Rotterdam, we wish to share current developments in visual journalism and stories from around the world in 2020 with the people of Rotterdam.
Partners: World Press Photo Foundation, Rotterdam Photo,The Laurenskerk Fotovakschool, and Rotterdam Festivals.
World Press Photo Exhibition Rotterdam offers participants and visitors a safe and pleasant stay in accordance with the guidelines of the Dutch government. The layout of the exhibition in the Laurenskerk is such that more than 10,000 visitors can be welcomed to the event in complete safety.
