World Press Photo also offers an education package for primary and secondary schools called 'See the story'.
This package can be used for various school subjects such as social studies, history and creative classes. The package forms an ideal combination with a visit to the World Press Photo exhibition in Zierikzee and can be used to introduce pupils and students to the subject of journalism and press photography. It offers the opportunity to explore different aspects of visual communication.
The educational package covers a number of questions relating to the function of the press and the profession of a press photographer and photojournalist, including: "Why do we hear more about certain events, but less about others? And how are press photos taken? Who decides which photos are published? And what makes press freedom so important?”
We offer the following educational resources:
- Teachers' manual 'See the story'. An educational module compiled by World Press Photo;
- Workbooks for the students.
