Visit the exhibition

The World Press Photo Exhibition shows ‘the stories that need to be told.‘ Visit the exhibition with your school class and see what is happening in the world. This intriguing collection combines the aesthetic experience with social awareness. Great for CKV, media, cultural classes and more. School class visits can be booked through CJP.

We offer interactive tours of the exhibition. There is time to go out on your own, to ask questions or to complete assignments.

We can also replace an exhibition visit with a guest lecture, lesson planning instructions, or series of lectures. View our offer for Lessons on Location.

Education for schools

NonFiction Photo has developed a unique educational program especially for schools, pupils and students. With the help of fun activating lessons and the exhibition, students are introduced to the World Press Photo Exhibition, press photography and journalism.

The exhibition introduces the students to the world around us in an impressive way. Through preparatory lessons we tell the story behind the photo, what impact press photography has and how you can read the photo by looking in a certain way. By looking at images together, we make social issues open to discussion and we want to open the debate about now and the future. The audiovisual lesson letters or lessons on location can be combined with an exhibition visit or offered separately. It is also possible to just visit the exhibition and discuss specific themes during an interactive tour. In that case, indicate in advance which themes match your profession.


The visit at the World Press Photo Exhibition is suitable for pupils and students of all levels and is offered bilingually, in Dutch and English.

Lessons on Location is also suitable for all levels and is supplemented by three lesson letters with theory videos, assignments and discussion questions. The lesson letters are suitable for upper secondary education and senior secondary vocational education. In addition to a general introduction, various topics are covered: the photojournalist (photojournalism and visual elements), impact (social themes and the stories behind the photo) and visual storytelling (narrative strategies, media and image analysis). The total package ties in with the visual subjects, citizenship, CKV, philosophy, social studies, history, geography and Dutch.

You can contact us by emailing Marlie at or call 0630653013. It is possible to discuss tailor-made lessons, special projects, project weeks or guest lectures in the field of photography, journalism and exhibitions. Also consider substantive themes such as identity, refugees, human rights and fake news.
