BPPA 2022 PoY judging Day 2

22 February 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Boston Press Photographers Association Photos of the Year contest judging will be hosted by Emerson College Tuesday, February 21 through Thursday, February 23rd. If you entered the contest, it’s well worth attending a judging session to hear the judges’ thoughts about the photos and what considerations they make in choosing 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mentions.

Due to security protocols on the Emerson campus, BPPA members wishing to view the proceedings must RSVP with this form to be signed in with security.

Judging will take place on the following schedule:

Tuesday, Feb. 21 — 2:30pm to 5pm
Wednesday, Feb. 22 — 9am to 5pm
Thursday, Feb. 23 — 9am to noon

Please RSVP with the day and approximate time you would like to attend. Note: the form asks for your email twice; we can’t easily change it at the moment, so just enter your email address twice.

Address: SPC Black Box room at 80 Boylston St. in Boston

Go to the security desk and present a legal ID. Proceed to the stairs on the left down to the lower level. Turn left at the bottom of the stairs. You’ll see the SPC Black Box at the end of a short corridor. Please enter quietly during judging!

Winning images will be posted on BPPA social media and the BPPA website as soon as possible after judging, but names will be withheld until judging is complete. Please refrain from identifying photographers in comments until judging is complete. 

The judges for the contest are:

  • Alysia Burton Steele / University of Mississippi
