Would you like to support a young rising journalist? You can do so by donating a print to the National Association of Black Journalist (NABJ) Visual Task Force (VTF) annual photo auction. We raised more than $19,000 for NABJ scholarships at our 2011 convention in Philadelphia. NABJ is a non-profit Section 501(c)(3) corporation, which makes your donation tax deductible.

The Visual Task Force also is inviting black photography organizations to donate prints about the African-American experience. We are inviting several New Orleans organizations as well as the general public to attend the auction. VTF believes this will be an opportunity to showcase your images to a broader audience.

The auction will be held during the annual NABJ convention in New Orleans June 20-24, 2012. Submissions must be postmarked by Friday, April 20, 2012. Donation specifications and instructions are below. Any print you can donate will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Please contact me at or 215-400-0021 if you have questions.
