Two subsidiaries of communications group WPP are working on a new paid content project, scheduled for launch early next year. Reports the Wall:

Winning images from the World Press Photo 2010 contest will be exhibited at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh from 3 August until 28 August.

In 2009, Anthony Suau took the top prize in the photography contest for his image of home evictions in Cleveland, Ohio.
