National TV Contest Has New Categories
For the first time, the NPPA's 2003 Best Of TV Photojournalism contest will present a Station of the Year award to three different stations in three separate divisions: Large Market (1-34), Medium Market (35-69), and Small Market (70-212). You can check your market size at <http://www.nielsenmedia.com/DMAs.html>.
This year the contest rules committee is also adding a new topical category that will recognize excellence in photojournalism for coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There will also be a Judges' Choice award given, at their discretion, to the story they feel most exemplifies the ideals of television photojournalism. For more details on these and other rule changes for this year's contest, please go to the contest page.
