The work of the NPPA has never been more vital than it is today. Since 1946, we've been the voice of visual journalists, and we are more committed than ever to crafting new ways to equip, support, and celebrate our members' work in new media. We are capitalizing on emerging technologies, developing new avenues for inspiration and comradeship, and as more members transition into new venues as visual journalists, we offer touchstone resources for developing sound business, cutting-edge technical, and essential networking skills. Let us be your voice in the face of an ever-changing media landscape.

For Professionals

Professional visual journalists demand the very best. Our Code of Ethics promotes integrity among our members, and we advocate to protect the First Amendment and our members' rights to make a living from their craft. We offer a set of business standards for visual journalists, as well as those that hire them. Competitions award top-notch work, and our job bank makes finding employment easy. Workshops, conferences, and online education keep professionals at the top of their game, while many networking outlets provide opportunities for mentoring and skill development. We are the voice of visual journalism, and we are working for you.

We offer visual journalism students invaluable advice on scholarships and online education seminars, tips on entering the job market after college, and the opportunity to be mentored by successful professionals in our field.
