The commitment of Gruner + Jahr should not remain abstract but be lived and felt within the company itself. For this reason, the G+J press building is a meeting place in which exhibitions, panel discussions, talks and readings are organised. This enables Gruner + Jahr to be actively involved in the social life of the city and to be perceived both internally and externally as a socially committed company.
Large photographic exhibitions are regularly displayed in the foyer of the G+J headquarters in Hamburg, including the annual German première of the WORLD PRESS PHOTO. The WORLD PRESS PHOTO Award, presented by the World Press Photo Foundation, located in Amsterdam, is the worldwide largest and most important international competition for press photography. Every year the exhibition, presented by G+J jointly with the magazines GEO and STERN, draws thousands of visitors to the publishing house. The exhibition shows dramatic images of the world’s hotspots as well as contributions from the fields of sport, culture, environment and science.
