Delighted to see the National Press Photographers Association take note of KobreGuide today. The NPPA is "dedicated to the advancement of photojournalism, its creation, editing and distribution, in all news media," with more than 10,000 professional and student members. Here's an excerpt of their news item:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 6, 2008) – Photojournalist, professor, and author Ken Kobre has launched KobreGuide.com, a new Web site he calls "an online guide to the Web's best video and multimedia journalism – or, as we call it, the Web's most moving stories."
Kobre, an NPPA member since 1977, says the site will focus on "handpicked, high-quality documentary-style journalism" that is being produced primarily by major media outlets "and is frustratingly difficult for consumers to find."
Former NPPA president and Brooks Institute of Photography photojournalism program founder Jim McNay is the site's senior editor.
