  6. 6. Expanding Scope of IPTC’s Work • More than just creating technical standards – EXTRA news classification rules engine – VideoMetadataHub – News credibility • Introducing new standards and areas of work – Images recognition? Entities? AR / VR / XR? AI and ML? • Revive standards work – Ninjs? Semantic web / schema.org? Rights and restrictions? • Membership sets agenda – and does all the work – The Board doesn’t dictate the IPTC agenda, it supports it www.iptc.org 6
  7. 7. As of 1st of April 2019, Current IPTC Membership Voting members (currently 22) • Fee: • EUR 4,740 per Contributory Unit per year • 3 members pay for more than one CU (AFP 3, AP 2, DPA 2) • Total: EUR 123,240 per year • Benefits: • 3 delegates per CU Associate members (currently 34) • Fee: • EUR 1,580 per year • Total: EUR 53,720 per year • Benefits: • 1 delegate per CU Individual members (currently 8) • Fee: • EUR 200 per year • Total: EUR 1,600 per year • Benefits: • 1 delegate • Technically, 1 “free” face-to- face meeting per year (but several come to 2) www.iptc.org 7 Annual memberships fees for 2019: €178,560
  8. 8. Membership levels over the past 10 years • Membership slightly increased in 2018 after a steady downward trend • Number of voting members has declined from over 30 to below 20 in 2017 before starting to increase again • Number of Contributory Units purchased declined significantly, although now slightly increasing • The only organisations that now subscribe as Voting Members with more than one Contributory Unit are AFP (3), AP (2) and DPA (2) www.iptc.org 8 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 IPTC Member totals 2008-2019, as of April 1st 2019 Voting Members Associate Members Individual Members VM Contributory Units
  9. 9. Member segmentation • We can divide our current members into the following groups… – National news agencies (21 members in April 2019) – Systems vendors and integrators (14) – Consultants (8) – International news agencies (6) – Photo/image agencies (6) – Industry associations (5) – Publishers and broadcasters (3) – Academic / Research (1) www.iptc.org 9
  10. 10. Broaden Participation in IPTC • Recruit members who are similar to those we already have – National and international news agencies, system vendors and integrators, photo agencies • Recruit members who are currently under-represented in IPTC – Publishers, broadcasters, video agencies, academic and research organizations – Organizations head-quartered outside of Europe and North America • Ideally IPTC membership should reflect the global news and media industry – Does the work of the IPTC – which is driven by the current membership – appeal to under-represented groups? – Are the face-to-face meetings relevant and welcoming to all? – Should we hold meetings in “other” locations? Meetings in China, UK, USA, Portugal, Germany have had the highest attendance over the last decade • Can you suggest other organizations we should recruit? www.iptc.org 10
  11. 11. Update Vision and Mission • Does the current vision statement best reflect IPTC? The IPTC is the global standards body of the news media. We provide the technical foundation for the news ecosystem. • A new statement (more inclusive – or too broad?) IPTC is the leading representative of the technology side of the media business. • What should our mission statement be? One suggestion: By creating open standards, sharing best practices and facilitating collaborations between media and technology organisations, IPTC helps media organisations to succeed. www.iptc.org 11
  12. 12. Enhancing Voting Membership • IPTC is a membership organization – Membership fees are by far the main source of revenue – We have considered adding other forms of revenue - and we still may • The foundational membership level is voting member – Most of the revenue comes from voting members – Voting members determine the overall future of the IPTC • Key challenge is increasing the number of voting members – Without restricting participation by associate or individual members – Started to enhance voting member benefits, e.g. homepage promotion – We wish to attract more voting members and encourage associate members to upgrade www.iptc.org 12
  13. 13. How Can You Help? • Suggest new topics for IPTC to work on – and volunteer to be part of these new efforts • Volunteer to help revive older efforts – including the PR Committee • Suggest new organizations and people who might be interested in IPTC • Suggest locations for future face-to-face meetings • Feedback on vision and mission? • Suggestions for ways to enhance voting membership further? • On Wednesday afternoon, we will have scheduled time to discuss these ideas • Feel free to also discuss with any of the Board Directors • Formal changes would likely be voted on at the October 2019 AGM www.iptc.org 13
