Catholic Press Awards
Share |

Each year, CPA members are invited to participate in the Catholic Press Awards. The program allows you to promote your publication and reward your employees/colleagues for their hard work.

The Catholic Press Awards started as a few categories for print publications. The program has since grown to include multimedia categories, acknowledging outstanding video and online content.

Winners are announced at the annual Catholic Media Conference in June. Winners may pick up their award certificates at the conference. If a winner is unable to attend, the CPA office mails the certificates after the the conference ends. Winners are also published in the June issue of the Catholic Journalist and in the winners gallery on our awards website.

Due to inclement weather on the East Coast, Tim Walter has extended the deadline for submissions to Monday, February 13, 9:00am Central Time. We hope you can take advantage of this opportunity.


Publisher Members and Freelance Members of the Catholic Press Association may enter the Catholic Press Awards. All entrants must be in good standing by March 31.

To check your membership status, please call the CPA office at 312-380-6789.


So that every member can participate, each Publisher and Freelance Member receives one free entry to the Catholic Press Awards. All subsequent submissions are $36 each.
