NFPW Contest now open
The 2023 Contest is OPEN!
The annual National Federation of Press Women’s communications contest has officially opened!
The contest is open to writers, authors, copy editors, public affairs professionals, photographers, publishers or others in the communications field.
Entries must be published in 2022 and entries are open to writers of all ages.
The early deadline to submit entries – and avoid a one-time additional fee of $25 – is Jan. 18, 2023. The final deadline for books is Feb. 1, 2023 and the final deadline for all other entries is Feb. 8, 2023.
The contest is sponsored by NFPW affiliates and people living in states without an affiliate hosting a contest are eligible to enter the NFPW at-large contest.
First place winning entries in the affiliate and at-large contests are eligible to advance to the national competition. To enter the national contest, the entrants must be NFPW members, or must join by March 15, 2023.
National winners will be notified in late April and the results announced during an awards dinner on June 24, 2023, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
