All entries must have been taken or initially published between January 1st and December 31st, 2007. Photographers do not need to be members of NPPA to enter.

BOP is a project of the National Press Photographers Association.

Number of Entries Allowed Per Photographer:

  • Each photographer will be limited to 20 entries.
  • Photographers may enter in any combination of single, story, or portfolio categories, subject to the 20-entry limit.
  • A picture story or portfolio is considered one entry, so a photographer can submit considerably more than 20 images if they enter pictures in these categories.
  • A single photograph may not be entered on its own in more than one category. However, a photo may be entered in both a single category and one picture story.
  • Similarly, a picture story may be entered both in the appropriate picture story category and as a part of a single portfolio.
  • A picture entered in the wrong category will not be reclassified and the judges reserve the right to disqualify it.
