2023 CPA Better News Media Contest

The 2023 Better News Media Contest, recognizing work published in the last year (Jan. 1, 2023 – Dec. 31, 2023), is open for entries.

Here’s what you need to know:

🗓 Dates and deadlines:
January 1 – Contest opens
March 8 – Early bird pricing ends (prices increase $2 per entry)
March 15 – Final deadline

No deadline extensions will be permitted, so we strongly encourage contest managers to log in to the online contest portal early to ensure any problems are identified and resolved prior to the deadline.

🗞 Classes: The class structure remained the same as last year. Each news organization provided the number of original stories they publish on average per month. Based on this number and the publication’s frequency (daily, weekly, monthly), we’ve placed them in the corresponding class. Anyone is allowed to move up to a larger class, but can not opt to move down.

Check your class assignment in the Contest Guidebook (scroll down) and see who you’ll be competing against.

🗂 Categories: Categories have remained the same since last year.

📒 Contest Guidebook: The 2023 Contest Guidebook contains all of the information you’ll need. This includes dates, class assignments, categories and entry instructions.
