Throughout the last year, we have experienced a lot of change. Thanks to some outstanding, Canadian photojournalists, our fear and courage, pain, strength, and resilience were captured through photographs. The News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) is recognizing and rewarding these photojournalist’s hard work with the country’s best photojournalism of 2020 for the 14th Annual National Pictures of the Year (NPOY) awards competition.
Room Up Front is a new pilot program, founded by Canadian photojournalists from Black, Indigenous and People of Colour communities which offers mentorship opportunities for BIPOC, who are passionate about photojournalism and visual storytelling! With allies including the Canadian Journalists of Colour, The Globe and Mail and the Magenta Foundation, BIPOC industry professionals will help guide those interested in pursuing their own goals and becoming established visual storytellers for their community and the Canadian media industry.
