800 News, Associate/Individual and Collegiate Contest winners are now live for proofing! 2020 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! 

Please take a look at the winners and let us know if you have changes. The deadline to submit corrections is Tuesday, Feb. 23. 

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

We are currently working to move our Annual Meeting & Awards Presentation from March to the fall when we 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, 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 fall.

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