What counts as manipulation? Four videos show new rules in Word Press Photo Contest 2016

What counts as manipulation? Four videos show new rules in Word Press Photo Contest 2016 | Photojournalism & documentary photography Fotografia sociale e documentaria, fotogiornalismo | Scoop.it

Many things can count as manipulation in photography, but for the World Press Photo Contest, the code of ethics and entry rules focus on two important issues.

1. The first thing that counts as manipulation is staging or re-enacting events. 

2. The second thing is adding or removing content from the image.

Alessandro Zanini's insight:

Dopo le polemiche dello scorso anno e l'esclusione di un numero preoccupante di immagini dal concorso, il WPP ha stabilito nuove regole che definiscono i limiti del trattamento difgitale delle fotografie che parteciperanno al concorso del 2016.

[Deadline 13 gennaio 2016].

There a number of groups around the country who celebrate the heritage of the black men and women who herded cattle, farmed, and buil
