On your marks…
We advise you to start preparing for the contest before December comes around. Have a careful read of the entry rules to ensure the competition is open to you and the material you’d like to enter.

2010 jury chair announced
We are pleased to announce that Ayperi Karabuda Ecer will chair next year’s World Press Photo contest. A true professional with profound experience of the photographic industry, she is currently vice-president at Reuters. Since Ecer was a member of this year’s jury, she already knows the procedure. Participants in the 2010 edition, she says, should try to make their best edit ever. She also has this advice: “Trust your instincts. Don’t try to second guess the jury. Every constellation of jurors will give different results, and there is no way you can predict their reactions.” The names of the other jurors on next year’s panel will be announced at the end of October.
While we are hard at work to ensure that everything will be in order for the 2010 contest, this year’s edition of our exhibition continues to tour the world. At this point in time it is on show in Prague, A Coruña, La Paz, Budapest, Zwolle (the Netherlands), Oita (Japan) and other cities. In the next few weeks there will be openings in Maputo, Copenhagen, Toronto, Tauranga (New Zealand), Shiga (Japan), Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain) and Vienna.
