2011 Pictures of the Year Contest Judging

Feb. 7-9, 2012

The Boston Press Photographers Association will be judging the entries in the annual Pictures of the Year competition. We welcome everyone – especially members and students – to attend and observe the judging process.

The guidelines for attending as an observer are simple: Show respect for the judges, the entrants and the process. Attendees are asked to keep comments to themselves, with mobile phones on silent.

Updates and results will be posted on Twitter and BPPA.net
