San Jose, CA, January 30, 2023 — “We are delighted to welcome Canon, one of the world’s leading camera manufacturers, as a member of the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), joining more than 890 media and tech companies, NGOs, and academics working together to fight misinformation by furthering the implementation of open-source digital provenance technology,” Santiago Lyon, Head of Advocacy and Education, CAI, announced.

Founded in 1937, Canon is a leading global manufacturer of professional and consumer cameras and lenses and brings a long history of innovative and ground-breaking photojournalism projects to the CAI.

Photojournalists and others widely use Canon’s equipment to capture impactful, compelling, and beautiful imagery from around the world. Canon equipment has helped capture award-winning images, including Pulitzer Prizes and World Press Photo awards.

“Canon enthusiastically supports efforts to fight misinformation by ensuring the authenticity and provenance of digital images created and enjoyed by society. Joining the efforts of the CAI is an important step in this endeavor,” said Go Tokura, Chief Executive of Imaging Communication Business Operations at Canon. “We look forward to working with other technology companies and media partners to develop technology solutions that achieve these goals.”

Provenance technology provides secure, tamper-evident metadata that accompanies images and other file types along their journey from capture through editing to publication, showing the viewer where an asset came from and any changes made to it along the way. The CAI looks forward to working with Canon on prototyping and implementing provenance technology into their future products.

Adidas has revealed OCEAUNZ, the Official Match Ball of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™. It’s the ninth successive football Adidas has produced for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and designed to cope with the demands and speed of the modern game.

OCEAUNZ’s design features a decoration of blues and greens inspired by the unique Australasian landscape, with visuals nodding to the vast mountains of New Zealand and Australia’s connection with the Indian Ocean.

The cultural markings and the initials of both host nations celebrate Australia and New Zealand coming together to host this showpiece tournament. The Australian patterns have been created by renowned local artist Chern’ee Sutton, while the Kiwi artist Fiona Collisthe designed the markings representing New Zealand.

Franziska Loeffelmann, Design Director of Football Graphics at Adidas, said: “With record viewing figures for the Women’s Euros tournament last year, the upcoming World Cup would be a massive moment for the game we love. So we’re turning up with a match ball that we’re incredibly proud of - featuring our innovative technology and a design that represents the landscape’s natural beauty. We’re hugely excited for the FIFA Women’s World Cup and to see the women’s game lifted to even further heights in two great host nations.”

Like the Official Match Ball of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, OCEAUNZ features connected ball technology, providing precise ball data, which will be made available to Video Match Officials in real-time. Combined with player position data and by applying artificial intelligence, the innovative connected ball technology contributes to FIFA’s semi-automated offside technology and offers Video Assistant Referees instantaneous information to help optimize decision-making.

• OCEAUNZ features:

The program focuses on increasing girls’ participation and the proportion of female coaches and female leaders in football for good community programs, helping to ensure that every girl participant has a female athlete role model in their community.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023™ starts on July 20th, 2023, with the host nation New Zealand taking on Norway - and concludes with the final a month later, on August 20th.

OCEAUNZ will be priced at €150 and available from January 25th at Adidas’s selected retailers and online.

Adidas is the global leader in football. It is the official supplier of the most important football tournaments in the world, such as the FIFA World Cup™, the UEFA European Championship & the UEFA Champions League. Adidas also sponsors some world’s top clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, FC Bayern Munich & Juventus. Adidas also partners some of the best athletes in the game, including Vivianne Miedema, Lindsey Horan, Wendie Renard, Leo Messi, Paul Pogba, Mohamed Salah, Paulo Dybala, Thiago Alcantara, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino, Joao Felix, Serge Gnabry, Isco Jude Bellingham, and Karim Benzema.

NEW YORK, January 22, 2023 — 2023, serves as a milestone year for iconic American fashion brand ANNE KLEIN as it celebrates 55 years of style, impact, and the legacy of its namesake founder. Anne Klein has tapped South African supermodel, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Candice Swanepoel to appear in a new Spring/Summer 2023 fashion campaign to kick off the year.

Anne Klein, who founded her eponymous brand in 1968, is regarded as a trailblazing designer who forever changed how women dress. She provided a uniquely American point of view to the global fashion industry. She also inspired and championed women’s ability to make positive change, famously declaring: “Clothes won’t change the world. The women who wear them will.”

“As we enter this monumental year, we are thrilled to have Candice in our campaign series celebrating women who are positively changing the world through a balance of image and impact,” said Jameel Spencer, CMO in Residence for Anne Klein. “Anne Klein has a deep history of impacting women’s lives, and that DNA remains true today. Similarly, Candice has used her platform to deliver empowering messaging to women worldwide and is the perfect partner to help us further our mission and impact women today.”

“I’m honored to have partnered with Anne Klein, a brand whose values align with my own,” said Candice. “Anne Klein has a long and respected history within the fashion industry, and I’m proud to support their mission of empowering and championing women.”

Australian photographer Chris Colls shot the Anne Klein Spring/Summer ‘23 campaign at Pier 59 Studios in New York City.

The U.S. Postal Service celebrates the favorite outdoor activity of Sailboats with two colorful postcard stamps. According to USPS, “the stamps are whimsical, bright, bold, and modern — featuring illustrations that capture the joyful sensation of being on the water on a beautiful day.”

“Both stamps show boats cutting through the waves at full heel. The first depicts a single boat above royal blue waves, a white swell crashing against the prow. The white mainsail — adorned with a thick yellow stripe — and a pink jib stands majestically above a white, pink, and gray hull, all set against a gray-blue, cloudless sky,” USPS explained.

“The second stamp features two boats racing under full sail. The closer boat sports a teal-and-white mainsail and a pink jib — white spray curls from its white and teal hull. The farther boat has a sleek black hull, and a white mainsail tipped with red. Antonio Alcalá is the art director,” USPS added.

The U.S. Postal Service has also issued 10 Snowy Beauty Forever stamps in booklets of 20.

USPS states, “Gardens are places of beauty no matter the season. Even as the days grow short, some hardy blooms brave winter’s chill. Snowfall only heightens their splendor, serving as the perfect foil for their radiance.”

“Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps with original art by Gregory Manchess. The artist started with digital studies, then created the finished images with oils on the panel. The result is a set of beautifully illustrated blooming winter wonders: camellia, crocus, hellebore, winterberry, pansy, plum blossom, grape hyacinth, daffodil, ranunculus, and winter aconite,” USPS elaborated.

Mastercard enhances its connection with Indian Sports lovers through a Marquee Sponsorship of Cricket in India.


Mastercard acquires the title sponsorship rights for all home Cricket matches (women’s and men’s) and domestic first-class Cricket.

Mastercard has announced its collaboration with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to broaden its strategic outreach to Indian audiences. During this association, Mastercard will be the title sponsor for all international matches (both women’s and men’s) held on home grounds, domestic cricket matches like Irani Trophy, Duleep Trophy, and Ranji Trophy organized by the BCCI, and also all junior Cricket (Under 19 and Under 23) games held in India.

This sponsorship and its activations are aimed at enhancing Mastercard’s connection with cricket lovers across the country and beyond. For a brand highly invested in sponsorships worldwide with marquee properties like the UEFA Champions League, the Grammys, the Cannes Film Festival, and the Australian and French Open tennis tournaments, Mastercard’s tie-up with the BCCI further enhances its prestigious portfolio of sponsorships.

Mr. Sourav Ganguly, former President Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), said, “The BCCI welcomes Mastercard as the Title Sponsor for home cricket matches for the 2022-23 season. Along with the international home series, the BCCI’s domestic tournaments are crucial as they are a stepping stone toward making India a solid international side. The BCCI truly values Mastercard’s support in building Indian Cricket. This sport is more than a passion point, it’s a way of life. We look forward to innovative experiences for the fans via this partnership and delivering value to Mastercard through this collaboration.”

Mr. Jay Shah, Honorary Secretary, BCCI, said, “The BCCI is pleased to associate with a global marquee brand - Mastercard. We are in for an exciting period in Indian Cricket as we have Australia and South Africa coming over for the white-ball series before the T20 World Cup, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and the prestigious Border-Gavaskar Trophy. In contrast, domestic Cricket has a packed calendar with the return of the Duleep Trophy and a full-fledged Ranji Trophy season. As a result, the 2022-23 season will witness a lot of action across age groups, and I am confident this will be an enriching partnership.”

Mr. Raja Rajamannar, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Mastercard, said, “Cricket is a perfect amalgamation of sports and entertainment with immense potential to deliver priceless moments. Our globally recognized Priceless platform offers us the unique opportunity to delight cardholders, customers, and partners worldwide. Cricket enjoys unparalleled popularity in India, where it is a singular unifying force for the nation, and in numerous countries worldwide. It is, therefore, particularly relevant and opportune for us to have acquired the title sponsorship rights for all home international and domestic cricket matches organized by the BCCI.”

Mr. MS Dhoni, India’s legendary cricketer who has been Mastercard’s ambassador for over four years, added, “Cricket has been my life and given me everything I have. So I am thrilled that Mastercard is sponsoring all the home cricket matches of the BCCI, especially the domestic, junior, and women’s Cricket. So today’s Ranji and junior players will play for the country tomorrow and continue to embody the pride of 1.3 billion Indians.”

Mastercard is endeavoring to enhance its solid international base of sponsorship assets with uniquely Indian ones. In addition, Mastercard has worked to amplify this passion area by signing MS Dhoni, the former Indian cricket captain, as its brand ambassador over four years ago. Mastercard said that the synergies envisaged between Mastercard and Indian Cricket would mutually benefit the sport, its fans, and the brand during this tenure.

The fragrance has single-handedly disrupted the perfume world, setting the standard for floral gourmand fragrances and signaling a new chapter of fragrance femininity,” the company added.

“Ratajkowski, in her first collaboration with the brand, appears in the fragrance’s film short directed by filmmakers Torso Solutions, featuring imagery artistically directed and captured by photographers Inez & Vinoodh. In it, Ratajkowski explores the extraordinary power of transformation pushed to the extreme. A story of metamorphosis unfurls through a glitchy explosion of flowers and a call to ‘Unleash your feminine power,” Viktor&Rolf further stated.

Geneva, Switzerland, January 10, 2023 - The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2023, taking place 16-20 January in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, comes as multiple crises deepen divisions and fragment the geopolitical landscape. Leaders must address people’s immediate, critical needs while laying the groundwork for a more sustainable, resilient world by the decade’s end.

“We see the manifold political, economic, and social forces creating increased fragmentation on a global and national level. To address the root causes of this erosion of trust, we need to reinforce cooperation between the government and business sectors, creating the conditions for a strong and durable recovery. But, at the same time, there must be the recognition that economic development needs to be made more resilient, more sustainable, and nobody should be left behind,” said Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of World Economic Forum.

The program of the 53rd Annual Meeting focuses on solutions and public-private cooperation to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges. It encourages world leaders to work together on the interconnected issues of energy, climate, and nature; investment, trade, and infrastructure; frontier technologies and industry resilience; jobs, skills, social mobility, and health; and geopolitical cooperation in a multipolar world. Particular emphasis is on gender and geographical diversity across all sessions.

Switzerland is the host country for the Annual Meeting. More than 2,700 leaders will participate this year, with a strong representation from all key regions of the world. Top political leaders taking part include:

As well as:

Heads of international organizations taking part include:

This year will bring about the highest-ever business participation at Davos, with over 1,500 leaders registered across 700 organizations, including over 600 of the world’s top CEOs from the World Economic Forum’s Members and Partners, with top-level representation from sectors such as financial services, energy, materials and infrastructure, information and communication technologies. They come as governments increasingly look to businesses to implement big ideas quickly and inclusively. There will also be a strong representation of Global Innovators who are transforming industries, with more than 90 mission-driven leaders from the Forum’s Technology Pioneers and recently launched Unicorn communities.

Leaders from civil society taking part in the Meeting include:

Among the new initiatives at the Annual Meeting is the Global Collaboration Village. This purpose-driven metaverse fosters more sustainable public-private collaboration and spurs action to deliver impact at scale. In addition, the first-ever metaverse multilateral meeting hosted by the Forum will bring together experts and leaders from finance, food, and retail to drive action on ocean health and seafood waste.

More than 160 of the Forum’s civic-minded young leaders will join as members of our Global Shapers, Young Global Leaders, and Social Entrepreneurs communities this year. WEF will also welcome nine Indigenous leaders bringing the knowledge and expertise of their communities to advance regional and global efforts in ecosystem restoration, inclusive trade, and sustainable development.

More than 125 experts and heads of the world’s leading universities, research institutions, and think tanks will join the Meeting, bringing the latest facts, insights, science, and data into the program and the Forum’s work.

The Arts and Culture program features several sessions and immersive art installations on preserving coral reefs, displaced peoples and the global refugee crisis, gender equality and female empowerment, and global sea-level rise. In addition, it will include the 27th Annual Crystal Awards and Cultural Leaders.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the Open Forum, which welcomes diverse people worldwide to listen and share experiences with experts and leaders on pressing issues. The theme is Our Environment: Lessons, Challenges, and Opportunities.

The 53rd Annual Meeting will also be climate-neutral for the sixth consecutive year. New initiatives to boost resource efficiency and reduce emissions will build on the Forum’s 2018 ISO 20121 certification for sustainable event management.

NEW YORK, January 03, 2023 — IMAX Corporation announced that moviegoers returned to Pandora in droves with James Cameron’s groundbreaking sci-fi sequel “Avatar: The Way of Water” delivering a massive $48.8 million global opening weekend in IMAX theaters. It is the second biggest IMAX international opening of all time.

IMAX built on its historic legacy with this one-of-a-kind franchise, racking up 11.2% of the film’s worldwide gross on just a fraction of the total screens. The original “Avatar” is the highest-grossing film of all time in IMAX.

The North American box office led the way, where IMAX delivered $16.5 million in Domestic box office — 12.3% of total receipts. “Avatar: The Way of Water” also heralded a return to form for IMAX in China, where the Company delivered a $15.8 million opening weekend. IMAX had its most significant opening weekend marketing share ever in China, accounting for 27% of the total box office in China on only 1% of full screens in the market.

“‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ is a watershed achievement in filmmaking innovation and technology, and it’s clear that global audiences are choosing to see this film through the best technology for blockbuster entertainment in the world: IMAX,” said Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “As excited as we are about these early results, we anticipate a long and successful run for ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ as more people worldwide book their tickets.”

International IMAX screens outside China delivered $16.5 million at the box office with “Avatar: The Way of Water.” The film scored the biggest IMAX opening weekend of all time in a diverse collection of 11 global markets, including India, Belgium, Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, Vietnam, Chile, Kazakhstan, and New Zealand, where “Avatar: The Way of Water” was filmed. In addition, IMAX recently opened its first theatre in Wellington. Forty-one international markets posted the top five all-time IMAX opening weekends.

“Avatar: The Way of Water” debuted with the most extended IMAX global release across 1,543 screens and is available exclusively in IMAX 3D locations worldwide. The film will screen across the IMAX network through January in most international markets.

IMAX, an innovator in entertainment technology, combines proprietary software, architecture, and equipment to create experiences that take you beyond the edge of your seat to a world you’ve never imagined. As a result, top filmmakers and studios are utilizing IMAX theaters to connect with audiences in extraordinary ways. As such, IMAX’s network is among the most important and successful theatrical distribution platforms for major event films around the globe.

SAN FRANCISCO, December 14, 2022 — Stitch Fix announced its 2023 Style Forecast today. Stitch Fix says its 2023 Style Forecast offers a pulse on what’s happening in real life, not just on the fashion runways. “The forecast reflects billions of data points from nearly four million clients and critical insights from our thousands of expert stylists and in-house trend forecasters,” the brand explained.

“This rich trove of data — more than any other retailer — allows us to analyze how people live, shop, and dress today and where trends are headed tomorrow. One of the most significant industry shifts is influenced by the macro environment, which continues to determine how people shop and what we’ll wear.”

“Three-quarters of Stitch Fix clients say the economy will impact how they shop for clothes. 80% of Stitch Fix clients want to be more thoughtful when shopping for clothes. 90% of Stitch Fix clients prize quality over quantity.”

“As a result, we’ll prioritize high-quality, versatile, and trend-proof clothing over fast fashion.”

“And as more of us head back to the office more regularly, the line between workwear and weekend wear continues to dissolve, meaning Business Comfort. It is a significant trend we predicted for 2022. It will evolve to 24/7 Dressing, utilizing elevated essentials such as tees and blazers for women and polos and leather sneakers for men.”

Looking ahead, Stitch Fix has identified the seven key fashion trends that will define what we’ll wear in 2023:

“Clementine (Deep Orange) is Stitch Fix’s Color of the Year for 2023: Last year, we predicted Vibrant Magenta as the 2022 color of the year, and Barbiecore ensued. Looking ahead, we predict Clementine as the 2023 Color of the Year, a saturated, juicy orange that will boost our closets and our moods,” the brand said.

“We saw an increase in Fix Request Notes containing the word “orange” in summer 2022 compared to summer 2021. Sales of this bright citrus hue are up by more than a third year of year, with no sign of abating.”

“At Stitch Fix, we do more than help you find great clothes. We are your partners in style. It’s our ultimate mission to figure out your one-of-a-kind taste so that every single Fix and Freestyle item we send helps you to build a personalized wardrobe,” the brand concluded.

Bologna, Italy, December 15, 2022 - Ducati celebrates the double victory of the MotoGP and WorldSBK titles by creating two unique series of Panigale V4 bikes inspired by the Desmosedici GP and Panigale V4 R of World Champions Francesco Bagnaia and Álvaro Bautista. The celebratory motorcycles were unveiled during the press conference anticipating “Campioni in Piazza2”, the event in which Ducati celebrates this historic double achievement with its fans.

2022 has been an incredible year for Ducati. The Bologna-based manufacturer is World Champion, for the first time in its history, in both MotoGP and WorldSBK in the same season. A dream result that came true, thanks to the exceptional work of the engineers, teams, and riders. A double triumph that Ducati wanted to celebrate with two unique, collectible models.

The two special series, made on the base of the Panigale V4 S, will feature the liveries of the bikes of Pecco Bagnaia #63 and Álvaro Bautista #19. In addition, each motorcycle in the series will be made unique by the original autograph of the rider on the tank, which will then be protected with a layer of clear varnish. The two motorcycles, produced in a numbered and limited series, celebrate in their production numbers the year of Ducati’s birth. Each series will consist of only 260 units in honor of 1926, the year the company was founded.

Like the race bikes they are inspired by, the Panigale V4 2022 World Champion Replica bikes are offered in a single-seat configuration. The billet aluminum upper clamp enhances them with laser engraving of the model name and progressive number. The technical equipment boasts adopting the nine-disc STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, Akrapovič street-legal silencer (2 kg lighter than the Panigale V4’s stock unit), Brembo braking system enhanced by Stylema® R calipers and MCS master cylinder with remote adjuster, Rizoma billet aluminum adjustable footpegs and racing plexiglass.

Other technical details that characterize these special bikes are the rear exhaust manifold heat shield, alternator cover, front and rear fenders, and front brake ducts, all made of carbon fiber. Also made of carbon fiber, combined with titanium, is the cover protecting the single-sided swingarm. Finally, the series dedicated to Álvaro Bautista #19 features the brushed aluminum tank found on the more refined versions of the Panigale V4.

Each bike will be delivered in a packing case with dedicated graphics, a certificate of authenticity, a custom bike cover, and the Ducati Data Analyser.
