Welcome back! In this second-annual Associated Press Media Editors March online auction, find a bevy of great items on which to bid, including some wonderful photos from the Associated Press Photo Managers. A great way to find great buys and help journalism, APME can even help you at tax time, since donations to APME are tax-deductible.

Here's how it works. Bid now and bid often. You will receive a reply to your email bid letting you know it was received. But, you need to check back often, since other bidders may try to claim your prize. At 5 p.m. EST, Friday, March 30, the top bid wins. If you are a winner, we'll notify you to arrange for payment and get your prized shipped anywhere you designate in the U.S. (or make arrangements for extra shipping).

Bidding ends at 5 p.m. EST, Friday, March 30!

You will get a chance to feel good and help fund APME events, such as NewsTrain, webinars, the annual conference and other practical tools for newspaper and broadcast leaders and journalism educators.

Your donation or your winning bid goes directly to help this volunteer organization advance the cause of professional journalism for AP-member publications and broadcasters in practical, meaningful ways. The four 2012 online auctions produced more than $3,000 that went directly to supporting professional journalism leaders.

Winners will be notified after the auction has ended and will receive their certificates or items after payment is received.
