Better Newspapers Contest alert

It’s newspaper contest time again!

Are your entry choices obvious for the 2016 Better Newspapers Contest and Advertising Excellence Awards, or do you need to flip through the back issues?

However the selection process works at your shop, it’s time to get it going.

Your newspaper’s official set of BNC rules, categories and instructions will be mailed this week. The Advertising Excellence Contest materials for 2016 will be mailed soon after.

Contest materials will be made available online later this month.

Please make sure your staff person responsible for the 2016 BNC or Advertising Excellence entries receives the mailed packet or downloads the material online when it’s available.

All contest entries are uploaded to the Better Newspapers Contest site.

The BNC contest period runs from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016. Deadline for uploading your files is Monday, Jan. 16, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding the 2016 BNC, contact Simon Birch at (916) 288-6010.
