Contest & awards entry period now open!

It's time to be honored for your great work in the past year! The 2018 OPA Better Newspaper Contest is now open for entries!

Last year we introduced online entry and new categories to recognize both newspapers and individual staff members. All of that continues this year plus the Awards Committee added a separate Magazine Contest for those business member newspapers that publish magazines at least quarterly.

Upload PDFs of your newspaper pages and other contest/award entries at The deadline for entries is February 11, 2019, so start collecting and uploading your entries now!

Your newspaper's password is the same as last year. If your paper did not enter the contest last year, the password is "bnc". Contact Lisa Sutliff at or 405-499-0026 if you need your newspaper's password.
