Babette Warendorf (Exhibition Account Manager of World Press Photo)
Babette Warendorf is the Account Manager Exhibitions at World Press Photo since 2016. Born and raised in Amsterdam, she studied history in Utrecht, Bologna and London and spent four years working at the British Embassy in Mexico City. For the last six years, she has been successfully partnering with institutions worldwide to showcase the annual exhibition, with one goal in mind: showing the stories to as many people as possible. She's also developed thematic exhibitions based on our archive, about women's rights, migration and iconic images.
As the account manager, Babette is always looking for new ways to increase our global and local presence, especially in those regions that are currently underrepresented. She tries to maximise the impact of the exhibition by organising related side programs like guided tours and lectures.
