A quick look at changes to OPPA as we evolve as an organization.
New Process: OPPA has created a formal process around member ethics complaints. For questions, contact Bylaws, Rules, and Ethics Director Bryan Welsh.
Mentorship Change: After receiving feedback from mentors and students of our first round of mentorships, we're altering the program structure for 2018. Details coming soon - in the meantime contact Sam Tarrel with any questions.
New Policy: The owner of a venue who is allowing OPPA to host an event at no cost to OPPA will be given one complimentary admission to the event.
New Awards: Beginning with the November 2018 annual Open Competition, five new Elements awards will be presented. The awards will be: Impact, Best Composition, Most Creative, Technical Excellence Award, and Best Storytelling. The awards will be presented to five different images that score 80 or above.
