Nominations are now being accepted for the New England Newspaper Hall of Fame, recognizing the most outstanding newspaper professionals from throughout our six-state region.

More than 100 individuals have been singled out over the past 50 years. The talent, hard work, and exceptional accomplishments of these individuals provide inspiration to all New England journalists.

This year’s inductees will be honored during the annual New England Newspaper Convention, which will be held in Spring 2023 (date and location to be announced).

  • Nominees should be people who have made extraordinary contributions to their newspaper(s), the newspaper industry, and their communities. NENPA membership is not required to be eligible for the award.
  • People who have excelled in any area of newspaper operations are eligible — i.e., editorial, advertising, circulation, production, and administration.
  • You may nominate those still working in the industry as well as those who have retired. Posthumous nominations are also eligible.

Be sure to include any supplemental materials, testimonials, etc. that support your nomination.
