At the Holiday Scoop, you’ll also see prints for auction by local photojournalists.These sales support “Passion Projects”– visual projects they’re working on to illuminate a local issue or area of interest. Among the topics are environmental issues like coal, oil, pipelines and pollution and social issues such as the sex trade, immigration and hidden communities.

We’ll also have a photo booth, so be prepared for your closeup!

NOTE: After 9 p.m., Fado Irish Pub becomes a 21 and older venue, so please plan ahead if you or anyone you are with is under age.

This event, started in 2010, is hosted by a partnership of AAJA Seattle and the Society of Professional Journalists of Western Washington.
