Announcement from NPPA – National Press Photographers Association
NPPA is thrilled to announce that all four 2013 Best of Photojournalism competitions are now open for entries, and beginning today you may enter and view your submissions online. Entry is free to all participants.
The deadline for Best of Video Photojournalism (television) is Friday, January 25, 2013.
All other categories – Still Photojournalism, Photojournalism Editing, and Multimedia Photojournalism – close on Friday, February 1, 2013.
Revered as “an annual celebration of international excellence, in all forms of photojournalism and visual reportage,” the contest underwent significant reorganization in 2012. Improvements such as ease of entry, category revisions and additions, and choosing winners using a combination of both online and on-site judging will highlight the changes for the entire contest’s 12th year.
During the early rounds of the four contests, more than 40 experts will be used as professional crowd source judges to insure fairness and a broad-based selection. The final selection of winners in each contest will be juried live by a fresh group of working professionals who will be brought together for the final selection.
In the Still Photography competition, categories have been added this year for the Olympics, the Road to Office, and Features. Also new this year, Television Photojournalism submissions will be entered in the Best of Video Photojournalism category. Other changes have been made to clarify the categories, and these may be found under Contest Rules and Regulations.
