Hear Ye Hear Ye!
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:07 AM »
Hello friends!

Apologies for the silence here on the boards, we the new execs, have been in the kitchen cooking up some new initiatives. We are working on growing our member base from the bottom up and enforcing NPAC to have a better, stronger community. Discussion, ideas, suggestions, and criticism are key things to building that community, so lets lets not be afraid to discuss or ask questions here or on the Facebook discussion groups we have available to us.

Some new things were currently working on.


·      Year round workshops and panels to bring our community closer together

·      NPAC storytelling grants

·      New changes to NPOY rules and procedures (which will be announced on or before August 31st)

·      Working closer with schools for internship opportunities and better interaction and understanding about NPAC with students

·      Working with Archives Canada for future opportunities for freelance Canadian photojournalists to ensure that their photos are archived and protected

·     New NPOY and NPAC Speaker Coordinators

·      Plus so much more!!!!

If you have ANYTHING to say...questions, comments, suggestions, hate mail, please feel free to contact me at or

or continue the discussion here.

Thanks everyone.

Looking forward to seeing the fruits of your, and the exec's labour, Cole ! Year round workshops (mini short courses) would be great if the logistics can be worked out.
