Welcome to the third edition of Enter, the online magazine of World Press Photo’s Education Department for participants and organizations involved in the foundation's seminar programs.

And an especially warm welcome to all of those are visiting Enter for the first time now that it is available to many more people.

Regular visitors have already given us valuable feedback on the magazine and advice on how it might be improved. Please keep your comments coming. You can email us using the link at the foot of this page.

However, in this edition, you can go one step further by filling in a very short questionnaire. It will take you no more than a minute or two and will be of great help to us in making Enter as relevant as possible to you in future. You can access the questionnaire by clicking here or the link at the top of the right-hand column.

We would also be very pleased if you interacted with us.

Many leading professionals in photojournalism have strong links with World Press Photo and are only too pleased to share their thoughts and experience with you.

So please take advantage of Ask The Expert, for instance, by sending us a question, and a suggestion of who might answer it, to the email address on the Ask The Expert main page.

In Talking Point, an expert in a field is asked to write about a current topic.

In Edition Three, academic Kari Andén-Papadopoulos discusses the real impact of the widely published and highly controversial amateur photographs taken of Iraqi prisoners and their American jailers at Abu Ghraib outside Baghdad. Let us know if you agree or disagree with her conclusions by using the email link at the foot of the Talking Point page.

And there’s a new feature in this edition. Agenda, at its name implies, provides information about some of the events, competitions and exhibitions worldwide which are taking place or have closing dates between this issue and the next.

If you have any upcoming information for Agenda, or are involved in organizing an event, let us know by using the email link at the foot of the Agenda page. We are particularly interested in what is planned between July and October this year.

To help you navigate the magazine, all the contents are explained in the column to the right of this index page. You can easily navigate around them using the menu to the left, which also appears on every other page too.

If you received an email from World Press Photo telling you about this edition of Enter, it is either because you have been connected with the seminar program in the past or you registered to receive the email in an earlier edition. You do not need to register again. You will automatically receive another email telling you when the next edition appears in a few months.

If you do not wish to receive that email, please visit the Register page and then ask to be removed from the mailing list using the link there.

If you did not receive an email about Enter or were recommended to come here by a friend, you will need to register to be alerted when each new edition of the magazine appears. Visit the Register page and submit your details.

And please do tell your friends, or anyone else you think might be interested, about Enter. Just click Tell A Friend and follow the instructions.

If you are connected to the internet using dial-up, you may have arrived directly at this index page, skipping the cover which is a full-page image and takes some time to upload. You may wish not to click the Cover button on the left-hand menu in future and so avoid a wait for download. You are missing no important information by doing so.

Visitors using a broadband connection should be able to download the cover without problem.

If you are on a dial-up connection or just want to read Enter off-line, you can now download a pdf version by clicking a link towards the top of the right-hand column on this page. To read the pdf you will need a version of Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free from here.
