For the past few days, confined in a large hotel in central Beijing on the boulevard that leads to Tiananmen Square, the 13 members of the Chinese International Press Photo Contest jury reviewed 7,000 photographs among the 30,000 submitted by over 3,000 photographers in 63 countries. The CHIPP is somewhat like a Chinese version of the World Press Photo Award, exposing international photographers to the immense Chinese public while competing for the generous prize of 100,000 yuan ($16,500).
