While 2020 was a year that many would like to forget, we certainly don’t want to let slip from our memory the remarkable editorials, columns, articles, features, photographs, and impressive ads that were published by Virginia’s newspapers last year.

We encourage all Virginia Press Association members to summon up their best work from throughout the year and enter it in the 2020 VPA News and Advertising Contest.

The Better Newspaper Contest system is open and awaiting submission of your entries. The deadline to enter is Tuesday, Jan. 19. For instructions on how to enter the contest, rules and circulation group information, please visit our contest page here.

Contact Janet Madison (janetm@vpa.net) if you need the name of the contest contact at your paper.
