This special exhibition showcases award-winning photography from the World Press Photo Contests 2016 - 2018 that portrays our natural world and human impact on the environment. All visitors can see the exhibition for free at the Scheepvaart Museum's Open Pleyn courtyard.

The annual World Press Photo Contest rewards photographers for the best single exposure pictures contributing to the past year of visual journalism. Whether entered as singles or stories in one of the eight categories, an independent jury of professionals judges the photographs in terms of their accurate, fair, and visually compelling insights about our world.

The Nature category is for imagery showing flora, fauna, and landscapes in their natural state. In 2018, recognizing the importance of ecological issues, the World Press Photo Foundation introduced the Environment category for work documenting human impact, positive or negative, on the environment.
