Professional Contest

NFPW Communications Contest encourages and rewards excellence in communications in a wide range of categories — writing, editing and page design, photography and graphics, radio and 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). Once a large number of Colorado members begin entering the At-Large Contest, CPW will reactivate a state contest.  First-place At-Large winners are automatically entered in NFPW’s national contest.  Competitors are often from New York, New Hampshire, Maryland, Louisiana, Nevada, Tennessee, Oregon, Wyoming, Georgia, Florida, Connecticut and Michigan.

The 2019 NFPW Communications Contest is open! CPW members are encouraged to enter the At-Large Contest. Six Coloradans were winners in the national contest in 2018.  Click here to reach the NFPW contest web page. Save money by entering before Jan. 9. Final deadline for books is Jan. 15 (with $25 late fee for first entry). Final entry deadline is Jan. 22 (with $25 late fee for first entry.)
