The National Press Photographers Association is dedicated to the advancement of visual journalism — its creation, practice, training, editing and distribution — in all news media and works to promote its role as a vital public service.
The NPPA is the leading voice advocating for the work of visual journalists. Our organization fights for working news photographers, videographers, and multimedia journalists. Our Code of Ethics stands for the highest integrity in visual storytelling. Our advocacy efforts put NPPA in the center of today’s thorniest issues of journalists’ rights to do their work — and to earn a living from their craft. Our ongoing education initiatives seek to equip our members and prepare the emerging generation of visual journalists in the face of an ever-changing media landscape.
