The intention of the GWG Photography White Papers is to provide publishers and photographers with a compact set of digital photography guidelines for print productions. Correct implementation of ICC colour management and standards is essential to ensure that maximum quality is maintained from the original capture to the final printed result. We recommend using these guidelines for your digital photography projects for print productions.
Two versions are available: One for ‘news photography’ and one for ‘shootings’.
These guidelines were initially created by Medibel+, a Belgian graphic arts association: http://www.medibelplus.be
Subsequently these guidelines were edited and approved by the GWG.
Various other organisations offer more in-depth information on this subject:

- PPA (UK)
- NIDF (the Netherlands)
- UPDIG (USA)
