AOE call for entries begins process

Posted November 19, 2020

It’s time to begin the process of deciding which stories, photographs and ads will be entered in the 2021 Awards of Excellence contest of the Kansas Press Association.

Entries are now being accepted. The deadline for uploading entries is Feb. 15, 2021.

Because of a change in the date for the annual meeting to June, this year’s contest will include entries the 14 months between Nov. 1, 2019 and Dec. 31, 2020.

Two new awards for this year’s contest include Graphic Artist of the Year and Best Use of Color.

There’s also a major change in the entry categories: divisions will be based on circulation this year rather than daily or nondaily status.

As in the past, the KPA also will award separate news and advertising sweepstakes awards this year in each circulation category.

If you have questions about uploading or any of the contest rules, contact Bradbury at
