2019 News Contest
Entry deadline: Dec. 6, 2019
SCPA recognizes the best in South Carolina journalism through our annual contests. Our prestigious awards programs are open to SCPA members only. Each year, more than 3,000 entries are received in SCPA’s News, Associate & Individual, and Collegiate Contests.
The deadline to enter the 2019 News Contest has passed. Awards will be presented on March 21, 2020, at The Marina Inn at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach.
Your division will auto-fill in the digital contest platform after you select your newspaper. Circulation is based on your 2018
USPS Statement of Ownership (paid), 2019 AAM Report (paid) or your 2019 Distribution Affidavit (free). These are the figures
published in the 2020 S.C. Media Directory. If you think your newspaper is in the wrong division, contact SCPA immediately.
If you need help with the rules, figuring out where an entry should go, or need help with the online entry platform, contact Jen Madden via email or by calling (803) 750-9561.
