Palm Beach Photographic Centre is hosting the National Press Photographers Association's (NPPA) 2014 Best of Photojournalism (BOP) Awards and TED-Style Discussions. Attendees will witness thought-provoking presentations and panel discussions from BOP winners, visual journalists, NPPA members, and NPPA's board of directors during this two-day event. A reception of this kind is a first for South Florida, as this is the most prestigious photojournalism event ever hosted in the area. For anyone who misses out, you can catch the 2014 Best of Photojournalism Exhibition in the museum at the Photo Centre through August.
