Entries are starting to roll in to the California Journalism Awards contest.
Member media outlets and CNPA freelance members: Don’t get left behind in being acknowledged for all the great work you’ve done over the past year. Also, it’s still not too late to get some award-winning work published before the end of the year.
Deadline for entries is 9 p.m. Monday, Feb. 21, 2022. To provide more flexibility for members, CNPA has added an extended deadline of 9 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28, 2022, but entry fees will be doubled after Feb. 21.
Entries must be published from Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2021.
