BOSTON – Awards for the 2019 New England Better Newspaper Competition were given out during the 2020 New England Newspaper Convention, held Feb. 7-8, 2020 in Boston.

The Better Newspaper Competition is the largest and most comprehensive journalism recognition program in New England. Awards are given out in Advertising, Marketing, Promotion and Journalism categories.

We love reading the stories and seeing the Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn mentions from award winners, reporting on the success of their staff and publications.

There have been so many great stories on the awards that we wanted to try and capture all the headlines in one place. If we missed your coverage, please email and we will add it.
