World Press Photo Exhibition 2024

September 3 till September 24
Atlas building, ground floor
Price: Free (Student) Free (Others)

We are proud to once again host the World Press Photo Exhibition on our TU/e campus. Shocking, horrifying, beautiful, and breathtaking: the exhibition showcases the most remarkable and fascinating photojournalism of the year. The World Press Photo Exhibition reaches 4 million people in 100 cities worldwide, and Eindhoven is one of them. Visit the exhibition for free between September 3 and September 24, 2024, in the Atlas building on the TU/e campus.

From devastating conflicts and political upheaval to the climate crisis and the safe passage of migrants, the award-winning works document some of the most pressing issues facing the world today. In bringing together such important stories, the selection encourages greater understanding and awareness of current events, as well as serves as a reminder of the need for press freedom in all corners of the world.

The 24 winners, six honorable mentions, and two jury special mentions were selected by an independent jury out of 61,062 entries by 3,851 photographers from 130 countries. 

Connecting the world to the stories that matter
The World Press Photo exhibition reaches 4 million people across 100 cities in 45 countries. The competition began in 1955 when a group of Dutch photographers organized an international competition in Amsterdam. Its immediate success led its founders to make it an annual event - held almost every year since then. 

The World Press Photo currently employs a regional system, dividing entries into six global regions for judging. This system aims to offer a geographically balanced view of global stories and has been in effect since 2023, resulting in a diverse set of winners from various countries. Concurrently, the contest's categories reflect media trends and are now grouped into four format-based types—Singles, Stories, Long-Term Projects, and Open Format—across the same six regions, enhancing global representation.

Studium Generale is proud to bring the exhibition to TU/e every year, now for the 15th time, so that students, staff and the public can visit this impressive exhibition for free.

The exhibition will be open from Tuesday 3 to 24 September, 2024.
