NYNPA changes eligibility dates, timeline for Awards for Excellence contest

September 5, 2014

The New York News Publishers Association has announced changes to its Awards for Excellence competition aimed at making the entry process easier for newspapers that also participate in the NYS Associated Press Association's annual contest.
Beginning in 2015, only entries published between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 will be eligible for submission in NYNPA's competition. This will bring NYNPA's contest eligibility dates in line with the State AP's, allowing newspapers to submit entries from the same time period in each contest.
In order to accommodate entries that have not yet been eligible for its annual contest, NYNPA will accept entries published between Oct. 1, 2013 and Dec. 31, 2014 in the coming competition.
With the adjustment of eligibility dates come changes to other aspects of NYNPA's competition, as well, including a new submission deadline and a new date for its annual banquet recognizing contest winners.
The deadline for entries for the coming competition will be Friday, April 17, a date selected by organizers in order to distance it from the AP's usual mid-February deadline. Meanwhile, NYNPA's banquet will take place on Wednesday, September 16, 2015, well-after the AP's banquet in early June.
Newspapers can expect to receive NYNPA's official "Call for Entries" booklet for the coming competition in early March, 2015.

For more information on NYNPA's Awards for Excellence competition visit the Awards section of this website or contact Advertising & Events Coordinator Don Ferlazzo at (518) 449-1667 ext. 700 or
