Our Mission

Established in 1948, the Wisconsin News Photographers Association has been representing the interests of photojournalists – still and video – around the state for over fifty years, making it one of the oldest organizations of its type in the nation.

Our mission is to educate our members, display their great work, and connect potential clients and employers with them. Through WNPA’s annual conventions, contests, newsletters and educational programs, we strive not only to maintain the integrity and ethics of photojournalism, but also to ensure that those starting out in the profession can learn and benefit from the experience of others.

This site is a gathering place and a gallery for our members. It’s also a historical record of our organization, and a visual record of life in Wisconsin and every community we cover.
