Hi all
to all who didnt get their book yet and ordered or preordeded the book, it can take up to 6 weeks till the book arrives, it depends on where you are and the local post. All books ordered before the 10th of august have been send away . tracking the book send away by the german post mostly only tells that the book left germany over frankfurt. Pls have a bit of patience it makes no sence yet to resend the book already now.

@ajayan if an email is send like the newsletter and gets rejected out of any reason (also a full mailbox) we reset all email notifications of this email or try to reset as much as we can. pls check your notification settings in your account.
if any email gets into a spam directory pls mark the email as non spam.
Emails are send over the kujaja server but also over mailgun. Mailgun also notifies us if an email gets marked as spam, if it is marked as spam we also reset the notifications for hotmail, icloud, msn etc doesnt want to recieve emails marked as spam. If this happens too often emails dont get accepted.

have a great day!

thank you all for joining!

Hi Gido!
Great!!! Awesome job! I already ordered a book. Please let me know from which date they start being sent.
2017-07-18 00:20:33
I personally send the copies you all ordered here, all other salesways are into the publishing house's hand, they have a company sending the books for them. Around 80 orders came in here so out of experience that will take 2-6 days to have them all packed and send off. (still around 20 orders missing to get out of the costs but I am sure we will reach that)

We used to had stickers on some of the wsp and kujaja books. But for I printed postalcards for the exhibition to spread in Hamburg I also had some stickers made to put on the packages, but they look too good to put on a throw away package... I already put one one my laptop. I will put them in the packages of your order here ... as long as there are, so can decide yourself what to do with it :-)

Last year we had the idea to send the book to libraries near art academies, this way creative students would get to know the book too. Unfortunately we only send the book to a very few libraries. If you know a library where we can send the wsp3 book to in your country pls email me the adress at and write a letter in your language telling the book is a gift which I can put along with the book and what it is about. The postal costs go on me. Perhaps I am old fashion and young people don't go to libraries anymore to get inspiration... but I personally did...
I was in the library of our town so often in so many corners, it took me hours to leave it and find the books I could take with me. Guess the world is ticking a bit differently today... but I still believe in libraries :-)

Hi Gido, since I'm coming to the exhibition on Thursday I didn't order a book (I wanna buy it directly at the gallery). Maybe you can bring me one of the stickers on Thursday?!?!?
Or is it better for you if I order the book on the Kujaja page (because if the 20 copies still missing to be ordered)? Don't know if this makes any difference for you. Then you could bring it directly to Gudberg Nerger....!

Tim Huynh
2017-06-27 03:01:31

2017-06-26 11:49:48
I just heard that the printing house can't garantee that the book is finished printed and delivered in Hamburg at the 14. of july therefor we might have to change the date of the book release party and exhibition :-(
As soon as I hear more I'll update you.... don't book any flights yet!

Congratulation to everyone being in the book and many many thanx to the team for doing such a good (and probably exhausting) job! The selection looks at least as amazing as the one from last year.
I'll be in Hamburg on the 14th of July to join the vernissage. It would be cool, if other participating photographers could come too....!
See you there
2017-06-25 22:00:33
Notice on the 13th of July Siegfried Hansen also has a vernissage and book release party of his new book about schlagermove, very close to the Gudberg Nerger gallery.

Hi Gido,
I only wanted to let you know about a minor bug on the webpage:
I just wanted to search for Christopher Reuter here on Kujaja with my iPad but I t doesn't work with SAFARI; when I use FIREFOX instead it's o.k. Maybe there is a way to fix it after you have recovered from the big book project.... ;-)

Hi Gido!

Congratulations to all who have selected photos and the WSP team for doing this great job.

Could you tell me please:
- Total number of photographers who uploaded photos in 2016?
- Number of photographers represented in WSP4?
- Total number of street photos published in the WSP during 2016?
- Number of photos in WSP4?
- Total number of countries involved during 2016?
- Total number of countries represented in WSP4?

Thanks in advance.
2017-06-25 22:00:45
The numbers will be in the press release we had made which will be online very soon, 222 photos are in the book and if I am correct from 160 photographers from 65 countries, the amount of uploads was less then last year
Vasco Trancoso
2017-06-25 22:48:24
Thanks a lot Gido for information!

Can you also let me know:
1 - Total number of photographers who uploaded photos to WSP during 2016?
2 - Total number of street photos uploaded in the WSP during 2016?
3- Total number of countries involved during 2016?

Thanks in advance for information.

Please can we know the list of photographers who are included in the book??
2017-06-25 14:20:18
Here we go :-)

Congrats to all who have been participating in this giant project! Getting into this pool of photos is already a great achievment!!

Congrats to all who made it into the book!!! you can find the book in order of appearance here:

For we try to make every book we make a bit different and special on its own we added a very small selection of photos from the Porch project and the Public transportation project which you can find at the end of the book. There for not all photos in the book are made in correct time period. We also added up a special line of photos which have a more journalistic core you'll see that if you have the book in your hands.

We didn't do so many competitions as with wsp3 it happened that the photos the curators choose were not all from the correct time periode. We did allow that for last year we could solve this problem for there were enough photos from each curator's choice from the right time period but this year we couldn't. Before ending up having no photos published from a curator, we decided to take in the curators choices. We will of course try to prevent this in the future and come up with new ideas. If all goes right we will soon start themed street competitions with the curators which will be next to the normal street competitions (without special theme).

We hope you like the juries choices and the book! :-)

The book will be out on the 14th of July. The exhibition and book release party will also start on the Friday the 14th of July 2017 at 19:00 in the Gudberg Nerger Gallery, poolstrasse 8, Hamburg. All photos wich are in the book will be exhibited in very special way (othe r then the last years).

If you want your friends to get the book you can pre-order the book as a non member here:
please share this URL :-)

Members can pre-order the book:

There were around 40 preorders over the year, that is unfortunately not yet enough to pay for the production costs, I hope you'll help us out with a preorder

Thank you all for participating in this project!!! We hope you all continue to participate in this great project! The competitions have already started again:

have a great week and dear regards

we are still waiting for the last 3 images (of 35 images which were not in highres!) to get in highres, on friday we'll have to send off the book to the publishing house. Depending on if we do get those 3 photos or not on thursday we'll know the contents of the book this weekend. If we don't get the last 3 images we will search for photos which will fit to the photos those photos were in the book which are in highres, rebuild the index of the book check all names and numbers again...
Sorry for that all! But the book will be great that's for sure. As soon as we send off the book we can tell you who is in the book and not... That will be this weekend latest

dear regards! and have a great week!

small update

I visted the Gudberg Nerger publishing house yesterday:
the exhibition will start at the 14th of july and at that date the book will also be available!
All photos in the book will be presented in a very special way if all goes right.

We have a hard time at the moment with putting in the names under each photo... for a lot of new photographers got selected into the book every 4th person did not enter any Country in their profile... perhaps it is a programming error (hopefully not)..
We wrote around 25 people who didn't upload in highres, 15 people send back the highres photo... pls check your email or your spam directory.
Also some people did not enter their name...we are fine with fake names if you don't want to be published but we can't publish a photo under the title:
anonymous, from somewhere inthe world...
We do need to know who you are if you want to be in the book...

Photos from the porch project and public transportation did get into the book the publishing house agreed to that too.

The book will be great! The thickest of all which of course mean a bit more postal costs but that is worthy it.

btw we will need some preorders of the book very soon. A lot of copies were already sold but for we offered the book to a way cheaper price the total sum we need to published isn't reached yet.
You can preorder the book here:

Who's in the book and not? I guess we will know this weekend or at the end of next week.. my computer says no... eeh no my computer says 150 photographers...

have a great week!

Hi All,

the curators have given their votes and the book designing is in progress. We can alread reveal you the cover of this years WSP book, check it out here:
The cover of the book was decided together with the publishing house and the curators of the final jury round. The front cover photo is made by Ed Robertson and the back cover is made by Michał Orliński. Michael and Ed have been informed this weekend.

For the postal costs got down here we are able to send a thicker book and there for will also put in around 10 - 20 photos of the proch project which ended last year. Depending on the book design we might also take in photos of the public transportation project. By puting in these projects in the WSP4 book the book gets a speciel sub theme as its own chapter and will be again different then all other WSP books.

As soon as we know which photos will be in the book we will notfiy you!

have a great week!

When will you announce the selected photos for the wsp4 book?
2017-04-07 22:54:34
When the book is send to the printing house we can confirm the photos and photographers in the book officially to 100%.
The final jury will get together at the 29th or the 30th of April, we can give all the results of the votings of course. This result will reflect the book contents to 80-95%. The photos with the most votes should get into the book and there are always photos added with less votes so the book design can be flexible and put photos together so it also makes a good book too and is not just a bunch of single photos which have nothing to do with eachother. Last year we diveded all photos into categories and each curator had her or his own category, this year we want to try to do something different again whch we will also have to discuss with the publishing house and the curators.

Last year the cover photo was found very quickly, this year it was or is harder. We have selected a few photos but these need to be discussed with the jury and the publishing house. Before we can select the cover photo we will also email with the photographers personally. As soon as it is all decided we of course will tell you.

BTW This page will also be the page where you will find the votings, results and news about the WSP book.

Hi !!!
This competition has the title "Street photography WSP 4 - (9 of 9) (2016/2017 photos only!)". The estimated deadline for uploading images is 2017-03-31. But in "terms and conditions" it is said that the photos should be only from 2016. We have seen that many users are publishing photos from January / 2017 in this competition. How is it anyway? What is the deadline for entering "Street photography WSP 4 - (9 of 9)" and the photos being nominated for the WSP4 book of 2017?
