It’s official: our annual Excellence in Journalism contest opens today. This year, for the first time, the contest will be online; entries will be submitted through the Better Newspaper Contest. As with all digital migrations, it’s required some heavy lifting. (Thank you, Ron Miskoff!) Please be patient. We know the online version will require an adjustment, so we have done our best to walk you through the process. If you click on the Contest tab above, you’ll find a contest overview, guidelines, a complete list of contest categories, directions for submitting, and even information about how you can volunteer. Don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com if you encounter any problems.
