Entries are now being accepted for the annual ONPA still/online photojournalism contest. Rules are available to download here.
Still contest entries must be in the hands of contest chairman David Polcyn by 6 p.m., Thursday, February 28, 2013. Those entering the online contest must send their e-mail to Jonathan Quilter by midnight Thursday, February, 28, 2013.
Still contest entries will be judged during the annual convention April 18 - 20 at The Columbus Dispatch. Online entries will be judged remotely prior to the convention.
The are two changes to the still contest this year. A Campaign 2012 category has been added to the still contest for single news or feature photos from election contests of political candidates for local, state of national office and/or issues, including the casting and/or counting of ballots. All photos from the election will be judged in this category.
In an effort to increase participation, entries in the Product Illustration category will no longer count against your total entry limit, but you are limited to 5 entries in the category.
There are two changes in the Online Photojournalism contest. The limit per news organization for each of the video categories has been increased from five to seven. The Multimedia category has been eliminated.
Those with questions concerning either of the contests should contact still contest chairman, David Polcyn, online contest chairman, Jonathan Quilter, or ONPA board chairman, Karl Kuntz.
