A sweepstakes by American Reportage to award six free NPPA student memberships expanded because of additional donations and even more students will be joining the NPPA.
In a random drawing held over the weekend, 22 names were pulled to receive the memberships.
American Reportage is a newly formed collective of documentary photojournalists.
The members believed that as working professionals, they should encourage and support emerging visual journalists as they embark on their careers. Each of the six founding members donated a scholarship. Other professionals heard about the membership sweepstakes and also donated to sponsor scholarships and the number of students selected more than tripled.
Pete Marovich of American Reportage said that a good number of students entered the sweepstakes and if other pros wanted to donate, additional names could be drawn for a limited time and more scholarships awarded.
A $65 donation covers one student membership. If you are interested in donating, email [email protected]. The deadline is September 18. The additional winners will be drawn from the final entries and no additional entries will be accepted.
