MPA calls for Hall of Fame nominations

Nominations are being taken for 2013 inductees to the Maine Press Association Hall of Fame. The deadline for nominations is June 7.

Candidates must be Maine newspaper professionals who have made lasting career contributions to their craft, in or out of the state. Typically, some of each year’s Hall of Fame class is inducted posthumously. A total of 57 journalists have been inducted since the Hall of Fame was established in 1998.

The MPA’s Hall of Fame Committee asks that names be submitted as soon as possible so they can be circulated among the committee members who will select the inductees. Each nomination should be accompanied by supporting material that will help committee members as they make their decisions.

This year’s inductees will be announced in July. The 2013 induction ceremony will be held at the MPA Fall Conference in October.
Nominations can be sent to the committee chair, Bob Caswell, at, or USM Public Affairs, P.O. Box 9300, Portland, ME 04014. If you have questions, please call 780-4200.
