Group Exhibition

»World Press Photo 20«

The jury of the photo competition 2020 chose Yasuyoshi Chiba‘s photo “Straight Voice” as World Press Photo of the Year. The winning picture shows a young man, lit by cell phones, reciting protest poems as protesters chant slogans for a civilian government during a blackout in Khartoum, Sudan, on June 19, 2019.

“Especially in the time in which we live, in which there is a lot of violence and many conflicts, it is important that we have an image that inspires people. We see this young person who does not shoot, who does not throw a stone but recites a poem. It’s recognition, but also a feeling of hope. ”
Lekgetho Makola, chairman of the jury for the 2020 photo competition

The annual WORLD PRESS PHOTO Award is the world’s largest and most prestigious press photography competition. The mission of the World Press Photo Foundation has been “maintaining high professional standards in photojournalism and advocating a free and unrestricted exchange of information” since 1955.

A total of more than 4,282 photographers from 125 countries took part in the competition with over 73,996 photos. All photos awarded on 16 April 2020 in Amsterdam will be shown in an exhibition. The Freundeskreis Willy-Brandt-Haus presents the World Press Photo exhibition for the 17th time in the Willy-Brandt-Haus.
