Communications contest entries due Feb. 1

Feb. 1 is the postmark deadline for At-Large entries for the 2013 National Federation of Press Women Communications Contest. Arizona will not have a state contest this year.

Work that wins a first place in the at-large or state contests goes on to the national contest.  Winners of the national contest will be notified by June 1 and will be recognized at the NFPW annual conference in Salt Lake City in August.

The contest year is Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2012.

The deadline is Feb. 1, 2013, for all entries, including books.

The entry fee is $20, with checks made payable to the National Federation of Press Women.

Contest categories and the national entry form can be found at NFPW Communications Contest. Check the at-large box and submit two forms with each entry.

At-large contest entries should be mailed to Cathy Petrini, NFPW At-Large Contest Director, 10 W. Alexandria Ave, Alexandria VA 22301-2015

Questions have come up about Category 63 (essay, chapter or section of a book) and whether entering multiple parts of a single book should constitute a single entry or multiple entries with multiple entry fees. Contact Brenda Warneka if you have this issue.

New members or former members who did not renew their dues in 2012 can still enter the contest by paying dues now. Please contact Brenda Warneka for more information.

Questions may be emailed to Cathy Petrini, At-Large Contest Director, or call her at (703) 739-8186. State  contact is Brenda Warneka.
