2012 World Press Photo Contest

Dear photographer,

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2012 World Press Photo Contest and to enter the contest online by uploading your images.

Before requesting your login, here are some tips for using the web entry site:
o The web entry site works like an account where you can log in and out as often as you wish. You have a total of six weeks for your submission. Start uploading your entry as soon as possible.
o An image may only be entered once, either as a single or as part of a story.
o A story/portfolio must contain a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 images.
o Images can be uploaded as .jpg files or as .zip files.
o All images must meet the following specifications:
o Images must be at least 5,000 pixels in length.
o Each image must be saved as a separate JPG with the lowest quality setting.
o An embedded ICC profile is required. AdobeRGB or sRGB is recommended for color images, Gamma 2.2 for black and white. No CMYK.
o The content of the image must not be altered. Only retouching which conforms to currently accepted standards in the industry is allowed. The jury is the ultimate arbiter of these standards and may at its discretion request the original, unretouched file as recorded by the camera or an untoned scan of the negative or slide.
o Include the required metadata (creation date, place, country and caption/description) beforehand as it will be copied automatically from your image files.
o After having uploaded your images, you may still edit the order of the images within a story and change or add metadata if necessary.

The deadline for submitting your entry is 12 January 2012, 23.59 Central European Time.
