Changes in BOP

January 27th, 2011 | Uncategorized |

If by some twist of fate you’re reading this blog before you’ve been looking at the nppa.org home page or reading your weekly newsletter, then you’ve missed the news of the changes coming in judging the NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism competition.

You should read the announcement here: http://www.nppa.org/news_and_events/news/2011/01/judging.html

and you can go on and read Steve Meyers’ piece on the Poynter web site:

Sometime in the near future there will be more details on how the new online judging for the still competition will work. I’m sure to spend some time on that here when it’s announced.

In the meantime, less than 36-hours remain (it’s 4 p.m. on Thursday the 27th as I write this) before the midnight on Friday deadline for getting your entries in for the 2010 BOP.

  2. The 1901 “Sweepstakes” car however exists with the Henry Ford in Dearborn. It absolutely was restored for the Ford Centennial and a duplicate was built at that time, using the original as patterns. This was the 1st prototype Ford car. Again, it is actually perfectly documented that Henry obtained very fussy with the car, and also the investors moved Henry out to run using the style and design they experienced. Henry was even now on superior terms, for the reason that he managed to borrow the car on October 10, 1901 to go race it at Bill Metzger’s (of later EMF fame and other people) race at Daniel J. Campau Jr.’s premier horse racing venue, the Detroit Driving Club, a one mile, one degree banked flip clay track in Grosse Pointe Township (Not Indian Village). The 2nd Ford company investors brought in Henry Leland (later of Dewar trophy/Cadillac fame as well as Lincoln Motor Car Co.) to obtain the car up and manufactured. That style and design car and company, became the 1st Cadillac. It remains t be seen how record might have absent if Henry had crashed or broken the car within the race.

  3. Stumbled upon your entry in the contest (I just entered too). Fun shots! Your white photo reminds me with the windmills in Amsterdam. I like this windmill is not in the position known for them. Great blog and excellent luck during the contest!
