I had the privilege of attending the World Press Photo Award ceremonies in Amsterdam this past weekend. It was really a remarkable event -- with each of the winning photographers presenting their work directly to an audience of the other winners and colleagues from the international photography and media communities.
Stephen Mayes, who has served as World Press Photo Jury Secretary for the past six years, gave a keynote lecture during which he shared his personal observations, reflections and concerns about "how the media processes images" as well as his insights on the grueling but efficient behind-the-scenes workings at this most important award in photojournalism.
You can listen to Stephen Mayes' entire 49-minute presentation, including an introduction and closing remarks by Michiel Munneke, Managing Director of the World Press Photo Foundation, in this audio recording at Lens Culture.
