A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but permanently attached descriptions are worth a lot more as photos travel through the digital world. A campaign has been launched now to embed descriptive and rights information in digital media and to retain it during the whole life cycle.

The initiative has been launched by the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s), and the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), with the support of trade organisations representing visual arts and photo agencies. It aims to establish the practice of applying descriptions and the copyright status of the content as metadata, and to embed it permanently during the electronic exchange of digital photo, text, audio or video files.

ByAlan SmithOne answer to those people who say Congress is expensive is this breakdown for the CEPIC Congress in London 2012:

There are 40 half hour meetings possible during the allocated table times.

For a UK delegate paying 400€ congress fee that is 10€ a meeting.

For a UK delegate plus a table that is 800€, 20€ for a meeting.

For an overseas delegate paying on average 400€ for a hotel for 4 nights, 400€ for rail or air fare, 400€ for table and 400€ congress fee, all totalling 1600€, that is 40€ per meeting.

What a bargain compared to the cost of travelling around the world for 40€ one to one meetings.
