The NPPA Student Quarterly Clip Contest provides eligible members with an opportunity to compete against their peers and have their entries reviewed by working professionals. Student may submit both still and multimedia work. The contest is exclusively for full-time undergraduate or graduate students who are NPPA student members in good standing. Students must be enrolled full-time for at least one semester or quarter in the entry year to be eligible. Thus, students who graduate mid-year are still eligible throughout the entire calendar year.
