Stories of Change – Beyond the ‘Arab Spring’

Mahmoud Khaled, Egypt
"World Press Photo, the Dutch non-profit foundation has just announced the release of Stories of Change – Beyond the ‘Arab Spring’, a book and online presentation. Stories of Change offers a unique, intimate perspective on everyday life in five North African countries: Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia. The World Press Photo Academy ran a two-year training program for young photojournalists and multimedia makers from the region to support them in advancing their storytelling skills. The results are fantastic and the way they’ve been brought together via the  website application work really well."
