Photographer of the Year Eligibility (POY)
We've changed the criteria for POY eligibility. Beginning this year, the title of POY will be given to the member who holds the most contest points
(except those awarded from categories designated for portraits and/or details) at the end of the year. Whereas in years past, POY points
were calculated using all contest points, we are no longer including points obtained from portrait and/or detail categories.
This recipient is recognized with a permanent engraving of his or her name on the perpetually Traveling Trophy. Each year, this trophy is returned to the
WPJA and awarded to their successor the following year. The WPJA PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR wins an additional $1,000.00 CASH (USD) GRAND PRIZE BONUS.
