The Clips, NPPA’s Regional Monthly Still Photojournalism Competition

Welcome to the The Clips entry page!

The Contest Rules have been updated for 2024!

If you are still entering the “Portrait/Illustration” category, please note, the POIL category has been changed to PORT, that is portrait-only.  Please visit the rules page before you prepare your entries for the 2024 competition. 

The Clips is open to all NPPA members in good standing. Entries to the The Clips are open from the first of each month to 11:59 p.m. HDT on the 10th. It’s highly recommended that you submit ALL entries at once and that entries are fully prepared before photos are submitted. Submitting entries in multiple sets complicates the entry tracking system.

Entries cannot be altered once they have been submitted.

File naming and IPTC fields MUST adhere to the rules in the entry form or entries may be disqualified. Be sure to see read the rules here.

The category descriptions can be found here.

If you have any questions contact your regional clip chair.

The submission period for May entries has CLOSED!  

Please return on Monday July 1, 2024 when the submission period for the June clips will open.
