NCPA Contest Call for entries


The 2019 NCPA contest is now open. Deadline for all entries is Nov 14 midnight.

Although you may have participated in the past, all newspapers must re-register on the contest website. The code is listed in the rules packet. 

Members will notice a few changes to this year's contest.  All categories are open to all divisions.  Except where noted newspapers will compete in divisions based on circulation.  Online newspapers will compete in their own division.   NCPA requires a current circulation statement on file to determine division - you can submit a statement of ownership or verified circulation. 

Based on your feedback and a review of the number of entries by category over the last several years we have also combined a few categories in effort to  create a more robust competition without losing recognition of your work.  To award work being done in the digital space we have added two new categories:  best newsletter and best use of social media.  

We are constantly striving to provide the best contest of any state press association and welcome any feedback on how to be better.  Good luck this year and we look forward to seeing you in Raleigh on Feb 26-27-28 for the annual convention.
