The 2011 World Press Photo Contest is now open for entries, according to a press release issued by contest organizers today.

“Don’t send in something just because you shot it,” jury chair David Burnett advises. “Look at your work with a sharp eye.

Single pictures as well as photo stories/portfolios are accepted in the following nine categories: Spot News, General News, People in the News, Sports, Contemporary Issues, Daily Life, Arts and Entertainment, Portraits, and Nature. The categories Sports Action and Sports Features have been combined into one category: Sports.
