BOP Contest Deadlines are Near

This is a reminder and invitation to participate in the renowned annual Best of Photojournalism contest sponsored by the National Press Photographers Association. Considered “the contest designed for photojournalists by photojournalists,” we welcome you to submit work produced in the 2016 calendar year.

We hope you join numerous other photojournalists in submitting your entries to this year’s competition. There is no entry fee and NPPA membership is not required, but encouraged, in order to enter. But, the deadlines are upon us. The BOP Video and Video Editing deadline is this Friday, January 27th. February 3rd is the deadline for all other categories.

NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism competition annually attracts the most talented professionals in four divisions – BOP: Photojournalism Stills; BOP: Video and Video Editing; BOP: Multimedia, and BOP: Picture Editing. The images and stories entered in the competition are created by some of the most outstanding visual journalists of our time.

Traditionally, the contest draws storytelling images and essays about some of the most important issues facing us today. The competition truly is a celebration in the power of photojournalism in all its forms, and its ability to tell the world’s story.
