2013 National Pictures of the Year Nominees


CANADA’S TOP PHOTOJOURNALISTS RECOGNIZED

Great photos tell stories. They transcend language and cultural barriers and speak to basic human nature. A great photo is a snapshot of time that can reveal the world’s most profound tales of heartbreak, joy and reality with one single image.

The News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) is pleased to recognize the excellence represented in submissions by 128 of Canada’s outstanding photojournalists in announcing the nominations in the eighth annual National Pictures of the Year (NPOY) awards competition.

More than 1150 images from across Canada were entered in this year’s competition, representing a spectacular body of work.

The winners will be announced during the 2013 National Pictures of the Year Gala event which will be held May 24, 2014, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The NPOY judging by Lana Slezic, Louie Palu and Ken Faught was live-streamed online so photographers and the public could view the process.

“We decided to live-stream the judging process this year for greater transparency and to allow photographers the opportunity to learn from watching their work being judged” said Ben Nelms, Vice President of NPAC.
