We are proud to bring the World Press Photo exhibition 2022 back to our TU/e campus. Both shocking, horrifying, beautiful and breath-taking, the exhibition reaches 4 million people in 100 cities and 45 countries globally and shows the most exceptional and intriguing press photos of the year.
The World Press Photo Contest recognizes the best photojournalism and documentary photography of the previous year. This year, the winners were chosen out of 64,823 photographs and open format entries, by 4,066 photographers from 130 countries.
Connecting the world to the stories that matter
The World Press Photo exhibition reaches 4 million people across 100 cities and 45 countries globally. The contest originated when a group of Dutch photographers organized an international contest in Amsterdam in 1955. Its immediate success led the creators to make it an annual event – and the contest has been held nearly every year since. Studium Generale is proud to bring the exhibition to TU/e every year and for the 14th time now, so students, staff and all those interested can visit this impressive exhibition for free.
The exhibition can be visited from Tuesday 6 until Tuesday 27 September 2022 on:
Monday until Friday: 07:00 - 19:00
Saturday: 12:00 - 17:00
Free guided tours
We also offer free guided tours through the exhibition, given by trained TU/e students from student photography association Dekate Mousa. You can reserve a (free) spot for a guided tour here.
Bachelor students can register for SG&USE when they attend a guided tour.
