World Press Photo 2002

The highlight of the opening of the World Press Photo 2002 was the multi-media show put on by Erik Refner, the winner of the World Press Photo 2001.
The speech for the opening was held by Prof. Erich Lessing. Sponsorship of the exhibition was assumed by the Dutch ambassador, S.E. Japp Ramaker. At the morning press conference not only Erich Refner was available for interviews but also Femke Rotteveel (World Press Photo Foundation, Amsterdam). To judge from the opening evening alone the exhibition was a great success. It is an annual event and was held in WestLicht for the first time.
