Three weeks to contest deadline

Unnamed (1)Monday, Jan. 25 is the deadline to enter CNPA’s California Journalism Awards.

If your plan is to move the contest materials closer to your own “to-do” pile, now is that time.

If your best people are handling the sorting and selecting, please ensure that they’re on the case.

Entry packages with rules, categories and instructions are available online for the three contests:

CNPA’s contests are among the largest in the country. And its winners constitute the best in the state. Please ensure that your teams have the opportunity for recognition of their vital work.

Program note: Entrants will need to use a credit card to pay for contest entries. Checks are not accepted.

CNPA will announce the winners in March.

If you have questions about the contest or need help registering, please contact contest administrator Jason Schaff, (916) 288-6023.
