2014 Awards of Excellence and KPA Convention

Kansas Press Association sponsors its annual Awards of Excellence competition to recognize outstanding work by Kansas newspapers. The 35 contest categories focus on writing, photography, design, special sections and newspaper web sites. In 2014, 69 Kansas newspapers submitted more than 3,000 contest entries. The advertising portion of the contest includes competition in ad concepts, design and revenue ideas.

The KPA 2014 Awards of Excellence entries will again be uploaded electronically this year through the Better Newspaper Contest website. This process will prove to be easier for the participating newspapers! Click here for the 2014 Call for Entries and uploading instructions.

The KPA 2014 Awards of Excellence results have been released and emailed to all winning newspapers. Please register to attend the KPA Convention and Awards Luncheon. Click here to download the registration form for "Livin' It Up in the Little Apple."
