Unfortunately, we are declaring the Analysis category — both weekly and daily categories — permanently lost. The judge repeatedly insists he sent back the winners but we received no notifications in any form. We understand this is extremely disappointing to everyone who entered and we share in your frustration. With the volume of categories to be judged and the numerous volunteer judges enlisted, we routinely face the loss of a few categories every year.
Thank you for your continued support of the Maine Press Association and the yearly contest.
