The 2019 New Mexico Press Association's annual Better Newspaper Contest is open for entries. The contest window for entries is July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.
All of this will be in anticipation of the 111th NMPA Convention and Hall of Fame Luncheon on Oct. 24-26 at the Marriott Hotel in Uptown Albuquerque. We will be celebrating the best in New Mexico newspapers for 2019 and the Press Association Hall of Fame.
Once again, the Press Association is using the ACES System for our contest. That means the same computer interface as last year. You will be able to load entries starting on July 1. However, preparers are strongly encouraged to register at http://www.newspapercontest.com/Contests/NewMexicoPressAssociation.aspx.
Entries will be accepted until 5 p.m. on July 26 and judging by the Oklahoma Press Association will begin a week later.
As usual, the General Excellence, Supplements and Special Sections and Design categories will be mail-in entries.
All the relevant information for the contest is in the attached Guidelines. If you have any questions regarding the contest, please feel free to call at 505-275-1377.
