Judging in the Still Photography and Web categories of NPPA’s Best Of Photojournalism competition will start Monday at the contest’s host site, The Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, FL, and it’s NPPA’s biggest Best Of Photojournalism contest to date.
“More than 4,000 people entered the contest, up more than 25 percent over last year,” NPPA executive director Jim Straight said. “There are more than 21,000 entries totaling over 58,000 individual items (photographs, clips, and Web sites). That’s up 3 percent over last year, with a 20 percent shorter entry period.”
Photographers from more than 140 countries entered this year’s Best Of Photojournalism competition, which has remained a free contest with no entry fees since its beginning.
