was shot. Entries must have aired between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012. Year-end
contest deadline is January 15, 2013.

This year PPAGLA is offering an alternative way to enter your videos by uploading to PPAGLA:
1.go to the upload site http://www.sendspace.com/
2. browse for your file to upload and select it
4. enter the sender email (your email)
5. click upload
6. compose a new email which will include all the information we ask for on our normal submission form (form will be at the ppagla.org/video website)
Video info for upload and data DVD files: Export to Mpeg4 (h.264) Quicktime codec. Export your video at its original resolution (SD or HD) with a bit rate high enough to keep the quality and to stay below the 300MB limit for upload, bit rate around 7000k or more. For longer pieces in HD over the 300MB upload limit, export your entry, then burn a data DVD and deliver it the same as you would an SD Video DVD.
Entries can still be submitted as video DVD as well. Any other format will be rejected. One DVD per entry. Each DVD should be labeled with the story slug, the date it aired or published, the videographers name and station call letters or media organization name.
One hundred dollars will be awarded to the first place winners in each sponsored category at the PPAGLA Awards Dinner in March. If no category sponsor, no check, only a plaque. Winners will also receive a plaque commemorating their contribution to Photojournalism.
