The 2023 New York Press Photographers Association’s 88th Annual Contest and Exhibition Rules
UPDATE TO THE SPORTS PORTFOLIO
The ANTHONY J. CAUSI SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR:
The judges will select a “Sports Photographer of the Year” from portfolios submitted containing only sports pictures. If the committee and the judges feel there are not a proper number of entries, SPOY portfolios will be judged with the POY entries. Entries will consist of a maximum of 15 images that are entered in the categories. The portfolio can contain a picture story if you have one or more stories and if you want to enter a picture story. You will not be penalized either way if you do not enter a picture story or do. The entries shall consist of at least 7 images from a sports action category, 4 from sports feature category and 2 from a sports portrait-type of image. Entries should be in a folder labeled SPORTS PORTFOLIO. The same rules as for POY apply. Entrants may choose to enter two portfolios, one in POY and one in SPOY, but each must be different in content from the other.
