2017 BNC Contest

The staff of the Front Porch - Northeast Denver showcase their awards haul from last year's contest at the convention in April.

Now is the time to honor the best and brightest in Colorado journalism and advertising. 

Media members of the Colorado Press Association are invited to participate in the 2017 Colorado Better Newspaper Contest. Categories include editorial, advertising, photo and design, and best website. Awards will be announced at the 140th annual convention April 14, 2017 at the Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs. 

New this year: All of the categories in the 2016 Online division have been absorbed into the Editorial, Advertising, and Photo/Design divisions, with the exception of Best Website. Beginning in 2017, all content, whether in print or on a digital platform exclusively, can be submitted into relevant categories. The Online Sweepstakes award has been eliminated, although points from the Best Website category will still count towards General Excellence.
