The competition has more than 100 award categories broken down into three divisions.

  • Editorial/Multimedia/Photography Division
  • Advertising/Circulation/Promotion Division
  • Specialty/Niche Publication Division

Daily, weekly, and specialty newspapers are encouraged to compete in a range of circulation classes. The contest is open to all NENPA members. The work that you’ve published between August 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018 is eligible.

The deadline to submit entries is Wednesday, October 17, 2018. You can save 5% off your entry fees if you submit by the September 28th early bird deadline.

The awards will be presented at the annual New England Newspaper Convention, which will be held in Boston on Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16, 2019.
