|Catholic Press Awards|
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.
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.
The Awards Committee approved categories for four Catholic Press Award divisions:
Each division receives an award packet, which contains details eligibility requirements, instructions for submission, and a full list of categories for that division. We will post the 2017 awards packets on December 5, 2016.
