TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2022 /CNW/ – The National Newspapers Awards is introducing a new entry system today, as it begins accepting entries for the 2022 competition.
Entries will be accepted in 23 categories from Dec. 1 to Jan. 15, 2023.
The new system is designed to simplify and streamline the process for submitting and judging entries. Built by Advanced Contest Entry System in Springfield, Illinois, it was designed by newspaper people for the newspaper industry and serves more than three dozen news organizations. Our system has been tested by media representatives from across the country, as well as a panel of veteran judges, and has received excellent reviews.
The new entry system is one of several changes being implemented this year, alongside a new award for Special Topics Reporting, a Special Recognition Citation and a modernized website. The Special Topics Reporting categories this year are Indigenous Issues / climate change.
The cost to enter this year’s competition has been set at $30 per submission. Finalists will be announced in mid-March, with winners named at an in-person gala on May 5 at The Design Exchange in Toronto. It will be the first in-person gala since 2019. Tickets will be available for purchase next spring.
To be eligible, an entry must have been published first in 2022 by an eligible organization, with the work having been performed by an eligible entrant, as defined under the contest rules of entry. Rules can be viewed here. Entry procedures can be viewed here, while tips on using the new system can be found here. Categories can be viewed here.
While supporting letters are not mandatory for all categories, they are encouraged since they provide valuable context for judges. A video on how to write a supporting letter can be viewed here.
