The World Press Photo exhibition that traditionally takes place at the TU Eindhoven every year, and which was supposed to be held from 12 to 31 March 2021, unfortunately cannot take place due to the current Covid-19 measures of the Dutch government. In order for people who are interested in the exhibition to still see some of the winning photos and listen to the background stories, we are organizing a free live streamed lecture on Thursday April 1st from 20:00 to 21:15.

World Press Photo Exhibition Manager Samira Damato will show and discuss the most intriguing images of the 2020 exhibition in this lecture. She will also delve deeper into topics related to photojournalism, such as freedom press, dedication and sacrifice, danger, creating awareness and political change, visual culture, and the question of what makes a photograph truly great. Renowned photographer Esther Horvath will also join us online. She won 1st prize in the World Press Photo Award competition in the category 'Environmental single in 2020'.

At the end of the lecture, viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers via live chat.
