IMPORTANT CHANGE IN AGWPJA CONTEST SUBMISSIONS FOR WPJA MEMBERS

Whereas, in the past, AGWPJA membership was only offered to WPJA members who won awards in AGWPJA contests, as of March 2008, all WPJA members are eligible to apply for AGWPJA membership.

As a result of this restructuring, only AGWPJA members may submit images for AGWPJA contests.

Due to the AGWPJA application process required, and especially due to the fast-approaching deadline for the Q1 08 AGWPJA contest, we encourage all WPJA members who are interested in joining the AGWPJA to please submit their applications promptly.
