Hold onto your RAWs, kids. Following on the heels of the scandal surrounding Paul Hansen’s winning image earlier this year, World Press Photo has released a statement regarding its changes to the editing rules for submissions. In order to prevent another dustup, WPP will require that all photographers submit their unprocessed files in the later judging stages. There will be experts on-hand to determine the veracity of each photo, so that the judges can accurately judge each photo with full knowledge of what, if any, post production happened.

To World Press Photo, we say, “Thank you.”
