NFPW Communications Contest encourages and rewards excellence in communications in a wide range of categories — writing, editing, page design, photography, graphics, radio, television, web and social media, advertising, public relations/promotion/publicity, speeches, collegiate/education, books and creative writing.
Colorado members of NFPW are urged to enter the At-Large Contest run by the National Federation of Press Women for states without an active contest (like Colorado). First-place At-Large winners are automatically entered in NFPW’s national contest if they are NFPW members. Competitors are often from New York, New Hampshire, Maryland, Louisiana, Nevada, Tennessee, Kentucky, New Jersey, Maine, Oregon, Wyoming, Georgia, Florida, Connecticut and Michigan.
The 2022 NFPW professional communications contest is OPEN for entries produced during calendar year 2021.
