MPA Hall of Fame–Call for Nominations

Nominations are being taken for 2014 inductees to the Maine Press Association Hall of Fame. The deadline for nominations is Friday, July 11.

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 60 journalists have been inducted since the Hall of Fame was established in 1998.
A list of all inductees is available on the MPA website:

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.

Nominations can be sent to the committee chair:
Paula Gibbs
26 Touassic Lane
Woolwich, ME 04579

Questions may be directed to Paula Gibbs at or to Executive Director Diane Norton at

This year’s inductees will be announced in mid-August. The 2014 induction ceremony will be held at the MPA Fall Conference in October.
