The communications contest is a two-tiered contest open to anyone over the age of 18 regardless of age, gender, professional status or location.

The contest is open Oct. 1, 2020. Book entries are accepted until February 3, 2021 at midnight our time zone. All other entries are accepted until February 10, 2021 until midnight our time zone. All entries received after January 27, 2021 will be charged a one-time $25 late fee.

The first tier of the contest is at the state level. Winners at the state level earn the chance to compete at the national level. To be able to compete at the national level, the winning entrant must be a member in good standing with the NFPW by March 15, 2021. Entrants can join once they are notified of their winning entry.

Entrants with wins across multiple categories are entered into the state sweepstakes category, which uses a weighted point value for each placing entry. Based on those totals, sweepstakes awards are given to the three top-scoring entrants.

Entry fees for the New Mexico contest are $25 for the 1st entry $15 for each additional for NMPW members; entry fees for non-members are $30 for the 1st and $20 for each additional.
