2020 News Contest Winners

Winners are not for official release until March 1, 2021.

SCPA’s 800 News, Associate/Individual and Collegiate Contest winners come from 3,270 incredibly strong contest entries! These results show that despite the challenges of COVID-19, S.C. newspaper journalists worked tirelessly over the past year to produce incredibly impactful journalism. We are so proud and thankful for all you do and cannot wait to honor you later this year! 

The SCPA Annual Meeting & Awards Presentation will be held Oct. 23, 2021 at The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 spread and the vaccine roll-out and are hopeful that it will be safe to meet in person. While the actual awards presentation will not take place until the SCPA Annual Meeting on Oct. 23, winners may be released starting March 1. You are welcome to release winners in March or wait until the fall when awards are presented. Secret awards, cash prizes, judges’ comments and the President’s Awards for Excellence will be announced at the Annual Meeting. We’ll also honor the 2020 and 2021 S.C. Journalism Hall of Fame recipients at the Annual Meeting. If you cannot attend the meeting, we will ship your awards after the convention in October.

The deadline to submit corrections has passed. If you have a correction, contact SCPA immediately.  

More details about the Annual Meeting, awards, presentations, duplicate plaque orders and more coming soon! Let Jen know if you have any questions.
