PALMY Ad Awards

How to enter the PALMY Awards

It’s time to start gathering your best print, digital and non-traditional revenue-driving ideas! The digital entry platform and rules are live. The site will accept entries through Friday, May 20, 2022. The contest period is for ads that ran between May 1, 2021 – April 30, 2022. Thanks to the SCPA Foundation’s Smoak Fund, your first five PALMY entries are free! After the first five, each entry is $7. You may enter ads created in-house or by corporate design centers that regularly create content for your newspaper. All ad directors should have received login info. Please contact Kassidy Wright if we need to resend your credentials.

Awards Presentations

Awards will be presented in person or mailed to winners in mid-July 2022. On July 13, 2022, the digital awards presentation will be made available on the SCPA website and promoted as a resource for all members to use throughout the year. SCPA staffers will work with winners to have a recognition event on site at your newspaper.

Winners will be announced for proofing no later than June 24.
