Communications contest open; still time to publish winning entries

There’s still time to get a story in, a release out or a blog posted in order to to compete the 2015 APW Communications Contest. First-place winners of the statewide contest are eligible to compete in the National Federation of Press Women Communications Contest.

All entries must have been published, issued, broadcast or e-published between Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2014.

The contest provides an opportunity to compete in a wide range of categories, and encourages and rewards excellence in communication. Entries are judged by leaders in their fields of expertise.

Arizona winners will be honored at the annual membership meeting in the spring, and national contest winners will be featured at the NFPW 2015 Annual Communications Contest Awards Banquet during the national conference, Sept. 10-12, in Anchorage, Alaska.

All work must be submitted electronically with exceptions for a few categories where electronic entry may not be possible: publications edited by entrant (for example, entire newspapers or magazines) and books. The entry deadline is Monday, Feb. 9. For work that must be submitted in hard-copy format, the entry deadline is Monday, Feb. 2.
