It’s that time (again) to choose your best work for entry in the 2012 CNPA Better Newspapers Contest (BNC).
Your newspaper’s official set of BNC rules, categories and interactive entry form is attached for use in preparing and submitting entries. The contest period: Nov. 1, 2011, through Nov. 7, 2012 – was extended so that coverage and results of the 2012 presidential election can be included.
This year’s contest has 28 categories, 14 of those categories accept entries from your digital publication as well as in print.
The General Excellence plaques will be presented at the BNC Digital Awards Show & Luncheon on Saturday, April 20, 2013, during CNPA’s Annual Revenue Summit at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. The BNC show will showcase all winners along with a selection of winning photos encompassing one of the best digital awards shows yet. This will be a must-see event for 2013.
The CNPA Better Newspapers Contest is California’s foremost awards program for outstanding journalistic achievements. To recognize your staff’s hard work, you must enter. If you do not handle the entries for the BNC, please forward this email to the person responsible so your newspaper is represented in the competition.
If you have any questions, please contact Bryan Clark.
