World Press Photo Awards Days 2012

April 2012

The Oude Kerk, the oldest monument in Amsterdam, was the venue for the traditional Canon ‘prize winners dinner’ on the evening of Friday 20 April 2012, during which many of the winning photographers from the 2012 World Press Photo Contest got their first chance to see their award-winning work exhibited.

For the second year in a row Canon’s printer group produced personalised versions of the World Press Photo Yearbook for each attending 2012 World Press Photo Contest winner, featuring one of their images on the cover. The books were swiftly collected throughout the evening and many attendees also took the chance to go in front of the camera in a special Canon portrait studio situated in the choir of the Oude Kerk, after which their photos were printed out on a Canon PIXMA PRO-1 printer.

After all the guests had had a chance to view the exhibition, and enjoy dinner, World Press Photo’s Managing Director Michiel Munneke welcomed the audience and noted: “It’s an evening in which we celebrate excellence in photojournalism but it’s very important for us to acknowledge the fact that World Press Photo is now, for 20 years, a partner of Canon.”

Munneke then passed the microphone to Mike Owen, European Professional imaging Communications Manager, Canon Europe, who told the audience: “The World Press Photo Contest is a huge part of the photographic calendar every year and it shows that there is still the desire for people to tell their stories in ever new, creative and imaginative ways. The work shown here highlights that photographic storytelling is still, without a doubt, going strong.”

The evening also saw Michiel Munneke announcing the 12 photographers who had been selected, from among 165 candidates from 56 countries, by an independent selection committee for the 2012 Joop Swart Masterclass. The Joop Swart Masterclass is a six-day meeting in which participating young photographers interact with six prominent experts to discuss technical, journalistic and ethical aspects of their work.

The independent selection committee was comprised of Alex Majoli (photographer, Magnum Photos), Dana Lixenberg (photographer), Maria Mann (Director for International Relations, European Pressphoto Agency), Patrick Witty (International Picture Editor, Time), and Silvia Omedes (curator and founder of Photographic Social Vision).
