It’s been announced that the World Press Photo 2009 jury will be chaired by MaryAnne Golon, consulting photography editor and former director of photography at Time magazine, and that entries for the contest are now being invited from photojournalists around the world.

Joining MaryAnne Golon on the World Press Photo jury will be Akinbode Akinbiyi (Nigeria, photographer, writer and curator), Patrick Baz (France/Lebanon, regional photo-manager, the Middle East, Agence France-Presse), Jonas Bendiksen (Norway, photographer Magnum Photos), Peter Bialobrzeski (Germany, photographer Laif), Erin Elder (Canada, digital media manager The Globe and Mail) Per Folkver (Denmark, photo editor-in-chief Politiken), David Friend (USA, editor of creative development Vanity Fair), Ayperi Karabuda Ecer (Sweden/Turkey, vice president pictures Reuters), Volker Lensch (Germany, head of photo department Stern), Ricardo Mazalan (Argentina, photographer The Associated Press), Arianna Rinaldo (Italy, photo editor D La Repubblica delle Donne and editor-in-chief OjodePez), and Sujong Song (South Korea, freelance photo editor).

Golon has been on the jury before – she was on the 2008 jury that voted Tim Hetherington’s image of a US soldier in the Restrepo bunker in the Korengal valley, Afghanistan (shown above) as the World Press Photo of the Year 2007 - but this is her first time as chair. The World Press Photo jury acts independently of World Press Photo and the organisation has no influence on its decisions.
