A communications contest for you!

See How Your Work

Compares With the Best!

Have you done something at work this past year that you’re proud of?  Ever wonder how it would stack up against the best in Alaska and in the nation?  Then the Alaska Professional Communicators’ 2008 contest is for you.

Alaska Professional Communicators, formerly Alaska Press Women, is made up of both women and men in journalism, writing, broadcasting, public relations, and related fields.  For more than 30 years the organization has offered a contest in many categories of communication, with winning entries going to the national competition run by the National Federation of Press Women.

Again this year, the contest will be open to all Alaska resident communicators, not just APC members.  The contest includes 78 categories for print journalists, book authors, broadcasters, researchers, and more.  There’s a separate Collegiate Contest for undergraduate college students.

Winners get feedback from recognized experts from outside Alaska, as well as certificates and recognition from their peers.  Entry fees are low–$20 for APC members, $30 for nonmembers.

The deadline for entering most categories is Feb. 8.  Books and related categories are due Jan. 31.  Complete contest information is available at http://www.akpresswomen.org/commcontests.php
