Have your say as MPA plans next contest

Planning has begun already for the 2013 Better Newspaper Contest, so the MPA is seeking members’ suggestions for improvements.

Each year, a contest committee evaluates what is working well and what should be changed to keep the competition sharp and the categories up to date.

For 2013, the committee plans in particular to review categories for online entries, to ensure they reflect the work that MPA members are publishing today on the Internet. The committee will meet in the coming weeks and propose changes to the MPA board in early 2013.

If you have a suggestion, or if you’re interested in serving on the contest committee, contact the MPA at mainepressmail@gmail.com and this year’s contest chair, Troy Bennett, at tbennett@bangordailynews.com.
