Editor & Publisher calls for nominations in two newspaper competitions

epcompetitions-inThe March issue of Editor & Publisher will profile what the online publication has long labeled “10 Newspapers That Do It Right.” Never meant to be a “10 Best” list, the comprehensive feature instead spotlights selected newspapers that have earned a notable achievement in at least one particular area, carried out a successful innovation, implemented cost savings procedures, or developed programs that have generated revenues or increased circulation. This year, the popular online publication will also be including ideas, strategies and tactics that individuals have put forward – whether or not they’ve been implemented or tested. “The objective,” said E&P, “is to bring ideas together and share the best and the brightest in one comprehensive feature. All ideas are welcome.”

The deadline for submissions is January 16, 2017 at http://www.editorandpublisher.com/10newspapers/?utm_source=sendinblue&utm_campaign=2905__10Newspapers_01&utm_medium=email.

You can nominate a newspaper up-and-comer (or even yourself!) for E&P’s Publishing Leaders – 25 Under 35 feature article that will appear in E&P’s April issue.
