2022 Contest Rules

The 2021-2022 NCPA Contest is open for entries. Please see the attached rules packets for the editorial and advertising contests. NEW for 2022: The NCPA board has approved new criteria for the contest divisions. We are now combining print circulation and digital only subscriptions to determine your division. The DAILY divisions have also been combined into TWO divisions-above and below 10,000 in total circulation. If you have questions about your division or dispute where you have been placed, please send your most recent statement of ownership to phil@ncpress.com .

The deadline for all uploaded entries is 11:59pm, April 12, 2022. Upload entries here.  All members need to go to the website and register- it does not save your information from last year. 

Please find the code to register in the rules packet.
