Two weeks to News-Editorial Contest deadline
There are now just two weeks (or, rather, two weeks and one day) until the submission deadline for the 2012 Better Newspaper News-Editorial Contest: Friday, March 30, by 5 p.m. The Arkansas Press Association (APA) has sent materials to all members, and rules, information and entry forms can be downloaded at the APA’s website in the “APA News” section on the main page. The Glenwood Herald was the first newspaper to submit its entries for the contest.
Held annually by the APA, the competition regularly attracts thousands of submissions from newspapers across the state. Winners will be announced Saturday, June 30 at the conclusion of this year’s SuperConvention at the DoubleTree Hotel in Little Rock during the Awards Banquet.
Newspapers will be notified in late May if they have entries that have placed in one or more of the categories, but specific award announcements will not be made until the official presentation.
