Democracy cannot be achieved without a free and independent press. Independent news organizations hold government officials accountable. The National Press Photographers Association provides numerous educational opportunities for professional development in photojournalism. It is vital that college students who aspire to be photojournalists be members of NPPA.
The cost of a college degree is very expensive and many students incur large debt loads in order to complete their degrees. Memberships in professional organizations, while fundamental in developing a measure of professionalism and ethics outside of the classroom are sometimes not affordable.
Your gift to the National Press Photographs Association through the National Press Photographers Foundation funds an annual student membership in NPPA. This membership comes with a subscription to News Photographer Magazine, the premiere publication showing students professional standards in visual journalism and discussion of important issues in photojournalism. It is the very best way to augment classroom instruction.
Please consider supporting a worthy student at the beginning of that student’s professional career. The NPPF is a 501 (c)(3) organization and your contribution is tax deductible. The form allows a multi-year commitment and the option of paying that commitment annually. If you choose a multi-year commitment with annual payment you will be be billed in subsequent years.
