NPAC Group Show
The News Photographers Association of Canada (NPAC) celebrates and champions quality and ethical photography in journalism. Through a variety of efforts, the association challenges its members to better themselves and to continually raise the bar of industry standards.
NPAC hosts the annual National Pictures of the Year awards (NPOY) each spring. This event is the largest annual photo contest in Canada and it showcases the best work of its members. It also recognizes the Photojournalist of the Year, Photograph of the Year and Student Photographer of the Year. The awards competition also serves to provide members with important peer review of their work as well as helping them to stay current with trends and techniques in photojournalism. This has become the largest photojournalism competition, for both still photography and multimedia, in the country.
Flash Photographic Festival is proud to partner with NPAC for it's inaugural Winnipeg show! Held at the historic Forks Market, this is not to be missed!
