March 31st- 2009 European Publishers Award for Photography

All entries accepted from the 1st to 31st March 2009

2009 European Publishers Award For Photography

The 2009 Jury will be held in Rome and Peliti Associati will be the Project Leader.

From the website: “Now in its sixteenth year, the European Publishers Award for Photography is a major initiative to encourage the publication of contemporary photography. Open to photographers world-wide, the competition is a unique collaboration between six European Publishers – Actes Sud (France), Apeiron (Greece), Dewi Lewis Publishing (Great Britain), Edition Braus (Germany), Lunwerg Editores (Spain) and Peliti Associati (Italy).
The competition requires the submission of a substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project. The winning project is then published in book form simultaneously by each of the publishers in their own country resulting in perhaps the most extensive cultural collaboration currently existing in Europe.”

See the website for complete information.

AP Countersues illustrator Shepard Fairey

AP has counter sued illustrator Shepard Fairey; this case is going to be interesting and relevant to those who create original material.  .

Here is the notice and related links from

“In its counterclaim, filed today, the AP asserts that Fairey was “fully aware” that his poster was based on a copyrighted image, and that he “misappropriated the AP’s rights in that image.”  The AP, which says it made “every effort amicably to enter into a license and avoid litigation,” is seeking damages and injunctive relief on claims of copyright infringement.”
