World Press Photo 2018 Exhibition

19-10-2018 - 11-11-2018, 09:00-18:00

Centre Céramique (Plein 1992, Maastricht)


The exhibition, the result of an international competition for press photography, is not only an overview of the best press photos of the previous year; it is at the same time a historical document. The exposition travels to 100 cities all over the world, and is visited by millions of people. The admission to the exhibition is free.

The winner of the World Press Photo of the year is Ronalde Schemidt from Venezuela. In his picture we see a man who catches fire amid violent clashes with riot police during a protest in Caracas, Venezuela.


On the first day of the exhibition in Maastricht, Centre Céramique has arranged a guided tour given by one of the staff members of World Press Photo. This guided tour takes place on Friday 19 October, at 14.00 and will be held in English. The guided tour costs €4,50 (€3,50 for library members (reduced price only in presale).
