While in Copenhagen, the director Lars Boering had invited a selection of photographers, picture editors and teachers to debate the future of photojournalism and how World Press Photo can influence the photojournalistic media.

Mads Greve and Søren Pagter were among the people invited for the debate, which focussed on manipulation both within the use of post production and manipulation made by wrong context and by arranging pictures.


As a part of the meeting Lars Boering presented a draft to the new rules for the World Press Photo competition, just like he presented "the state of news photography" - a research the organization has made together with David Campbell.
