Sounding of the gong marks start of World Press Photo world tour
Winner of World Press Photo 2014, Mads Nissen, opens trading by sounding the gong. He does this in the company of exhibition sponsor Delta Lloyd (ticker symbol: DL). The sounding of the gong marks the start of the World Press Photo world tour, on Saturday 18 April at De Nieuwe Kerk in Amsterdam.
The worldwide tour of the international press photography contest features awe-inspiring press photos by 42 prize winners from 17 countries in eight categories: General News, Daily Life, Spot News, Contemporary Issues, Long-Term Projects, Nature, Portraits and Sports. First, second and third prizes for both single shots and photo series are awarded in each category. The special display system developed in 2014, when the World Press Photo exhibition returned to De Nieuwe Kerk for the first time in 15 years, will be used again this year. The photos appear to be floating in space in the interior of the large Gothic church on Amsterdam’s Dam Square.
World Press Photo receives support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and is sponsored worldwide by Canon. The exhibition in Amsterdam is sponsored by Delta Lloyd.
