Best photographic news reporting from abroad in any medium.
Pictures must provide an accurate and fair representation of the scene witnessed. The content of a picture cannot be altered by adding, rearranging, reversing, distorting or removing people or objects from within the frame. The judges may request to see raw files for review.
Each of the photo awards are for individual photographers, not groups. Therefore all photos for one submission must have been shot by the same photographer.
Book entries will send two hard copies to the OPC office, 40 West 45 Street, New York, NY, 10036.
Upload high resolution photos to the contest website. DO NOT SEND DVDs or CDs to the OPC office. Title the uploads by award last name, nominee’s first initial and last name and number the jpgs, for example: rebbot_jdoe_1.jpg
Send no more than 12 images (images 10 inches at longest dimension, 300 dpi, JPEG) with captions for each image in a separate Word Document and also embedded in the image IPTC information or description field. In addition to photos, you must submit proof of publication for all photos submitted. Scan and create a PDF from a newspaper tearsheet, magazine article, book or website link. Upload everything into one .zip folder: images, Word document, proof of publication in PDF and IPTC information.
All questions concerning the awards should be directed to Patricia Kranz, Executive Director of the Overseas Press Club of America, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212 626-9220.
