The contest is now accepting entries for Q3 – stories that were aired/published between July 1 and September 30. Read the rules and enter today. The deadline is October 10, late entries will not be accepted.
The NPPA did a survey this year of 1,609 active NPPA members.
-27% of members make less then $25,000 a year
-73% pay the dues out of their own pocket
$110 is a lot of beer money. To help make that due payment easier to swallow, the NPPA has a promotion going on right now. Recruit a new member and each of you save $20. The contest re-opens for Q3 entries on October 1. Now is the perfect time to get your friend or co-worker to enter the contest in Q3, save money, and strengthen the organization that works to advocate on your behalf. The benefits go far beyond this contest.
Sean Towle of KDVR in Denver, CO will be taking over Central Top Pool. Meet Sean!
“I’ve spent 10 years in TV working as a photographer, including 4 years as an MMJ. I started at WEAU in Eau Claire, WI before moving on to WKOW in Madison. after 4 years split between being an MMJ and the chief sports photographer. I then went to WITI in Milwaukee where I began to get heavily involved in the NPPA Quarterly Contests. After a couple years in Milwaukee, I finally left the state of Wisconsin and headed west to KDVR in Denver starting on Jan. 1 of 2013. I’ve taken part in the contests for the past 3 years, finishing as the West General POY runner up in 2013. I was also part of a great staff at WITI that was SOY finalist in 2012. I am looking forward to being regional chair and hope to get results back faster than Carolyn Hall Jensen, if that is possible.”
The amazing Corky Scholl is stepping down after many years of awesome service to the contest. Thank you, Corky for all that you’ve done to make the contest a success!
