Andrew Wiard will be speaking at the IPTC Metadata Conference held during the CEPIC Congress, on Thursday, 6 June 2019, 14:00 – 18:00. 

“I began my life in press photography and photojournalism under the guidance of Simon Guttmann, at Report of London. I now work alone, continuing in the Report tradition. Along the way I’ve campaigned for reform of UK copyright law, first by representing the National Union of Journalists on the British Copyright Council during the passing of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988. And more recently with Stop43, removing the notorious Clause 43 from the UK’s Digital Economy Act of 2010. I’ve also co-founded Editorial Photographers UK, and am now on the Board of the British Press Photographers’ Association.”
