NPPA's Best of Photojournalism Winners to be Announced Next Week on

It is no longer just a "TV thing." Everybody, it seems, is interested in video these days.

Starting Monday on, we will post the winners of the National Press Photographers Association Best of TV Photojournalism contest, which is being judged at The Poynter Institute in St Petersburg, Fla. As judges announce the winners in the photography and editing categories, we will post the winning entries here. This year, we will post the 2nd and 3rd-place videos on as well, along with those that won honorable mention.

The contest includes TV, video and editing, as well as great reporting and Web video.

Also this year, we will announce the winning NPPA stations of the year as the week rolls by. The judges tentatively plan to announce the small market station of the year on Monday, the medium market station of the year on Tuesday, the large market station of the year on Thursday and the photographer of the year and editor of the year on Friday. Of course, we will also post their winning videos.

You can also follow my Twitter page. I will be in the room with the judges most of the week and will update you from time to time. The judges plan to post comments on throughout the week.

This contest is an especially popular teaching tool for educators who always want great video-teaching stories.

Here are some winning entries from years past, just to give you a feel for what to expect next week:

Together, they amount to hours of stories that you can use in your in-house or classroom training. And it is all free. I can't wait to see this year's collection of impressive video work.
