DURHAM, NC – Midnight on Friday night, February 10, was the final opportunity to file entries for the 2006 Best Of Photojournalism Contest before the conteset deadline.
The National Press Photographers Association’s FTP facility for online filing of Best of Photojournalism contest entries (both still and editing divisions) remained up and running throughout the entire "Call For Entries" period, NPPA contest coordinator Thomas Kenniff said today.
But for those who may have had trouble, for any reason, filing their entries by the midnight deadline, Kenniff says, “If you encountered difficulties as we approached the contest entry deadline (February 10, 2006) at midnight (midnight local time for entrants), please contact the NPPA office by sending an eMail to [email protected] or by calling us on the telephone us at +1.919.383.7246 Ext. 16. Leave a message with your contact information and reasonable provision will be made for the acceptance of your entries.”
Kenniff advised that the easiest method to submit entries (in the event of a technical failure) is to record the entries onto a CD-ROM and send it – before the deadline – to:
Best of Photojournalism 2006
Attention: Thomas Kenniff
The National Press Photographers Association
3200 Croasdaile Drive
Durham, NC 27705
“If you have waited until too close to the deadline and have technical problems, and miss the last courier or mail drop in your time zone, remember that late entries will be accepted only if you have contacted us (by eMail or by telephone at the number above) before the deadline, and you also have provided the NPPA with your contact information," Kenniff said.
