Award description: Best photographic reporting from abroad requiring exceptional courage and enterprise published 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.

Submissions for the Robert Capa Gold Medal Award may only be by a single photographer. (Submissions for the Olivier Rebbot Award and Feature Photography Award may have a maximum of three photographers’ bylines for each submission.)

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_a1.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. Scan and create a PDF from a newspaper tearsheet, magazine article, book or website link. Photos commissioned by a non-profit organization are eligible as long as they are also published by a news organization or a news-related nonprofit. Upload everything into one .zip folder: images, Word document, proof of publication in PDF and IPTC information.
