VPA is proud to celebrate the best of the best in Virginia each year by holding one of the largest newspaper contests in the country, with over 5,000 entries annually. VPA members compete with their peers in over 50 entry categories.
During our annual awards banquet, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners are presented with a certificate. Best in Show winners receive plaques.
