There is still time to enter the National Federation of Press Women’s New Mexico Communications Contest. Enter by noon Feb. 2 for all book entries and noon Feb. 9 for all other entries. There is a one-time late fee of $25 but this is a small price to pay for the chance to have your work recognized on a national level.
This is a two-tier contest with the first tier at the state level. Entrants do not have to members of the local chapter to enter but there are many benefits to joining. If an entry is moved on to the national level then the entrant must be a member of the National Federation of Press Women. Entrants can join after they learn the status of the state level.
The contest is open to anyone regardless of sex or professional status. College students may enter under the collegiate division.
All work must have been published or broadcast between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. There are 12 divisions with 61 categories covering all types of media and communications. There is a spot for just about all types of media. Here is the link to the contest site – https://www.nfpw.org/professional-contest .
Awards will be announced at the March New Mexico Press Women conference.
