Here the current state of the international finale:
At this point, we have received nominees from 19 competitions (20 countries, including Luxembourg). We still are expecting nominations from:
Antarctica, Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Bolivia, Cameroon, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, France, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Mexico, Nepal, Norway, Philippines, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Switzerland, Syria, Tunisia, Ukraine, United States and Venezuela
Please note there is a deadline on 31 October, 23:59 UTC for submitting your nominees. Each participating country can submit up to 10 nominees. You can submit them by having one of the jury members or organizers (with a jury member in cc) to send a list of maximum 10 URL's of the winning pictures to myself and Monica Mora. You can do this under embargo - we will only share this with the international jury.
A jury of six jurors has been instructed with the procedures (very similar to last year), which will result in a jury report and outcomes to be published in the second week of December. Exact dates will follow when available, but the time there mostly depends on layout work etc.
Looking forward to many more beautiful nominees,
International coordinating team & jury moderator
