Dallas Morning News photojournalist David Leeson is the first confirmed speaker for the 2007 WNPA convention Friday-Saturday March 30-31 in Milwaukee.

He recently wrote a thought-provoking essay on Sportsshooter.com on the the future of photojournalism. Here is the link:

Leeson – The Future of Photojournalism

We have not decided on a location yet, pending the announcement of our Canon Explorer of Light speaker. The Milwaukee Art Museum has some advantages and disadvantages and we’ll need to balance those issues.

This year’s contest will be run by Nathan Pier.

It’s never to early to start editing your entries.

Instructions & rules are expected to be the same as they have in past years. Look for a mailing in the next couple of weeks. They will also be posted on the website.

We have a room block at the Hotel Metro. If you’re interested in a room there, please contact me at mhoffman@journalsentinel.com.

We’re hoping to announce our other speakers in the next couple of weeks. If you have suggestions please drop me a line.

I hope to see you there,

Mark Hoffman
