  • Division B - Dailies under 35,000
  • Division C - Non-dailies 15,000 and over
  • Division D - Non-dailies under 15,000

Prior to 2004, the non-daily divisions were broken up as follows: 

  • Division C - Non-dailies over 20,000
  • Division D - Non-dailies 10,001 to 20,000
  • Division E - Non-dailies under 10,000

There is an overall Sweepstakes award presented to the newspaper in each division that accumulates the most points in the contest. Three points are awarded for first place, two points for second place, and three points for third place.

One Best of Category plaque is awarded in each category, regardless of division. Additionally, a single Best of Show ad is selected by Awards Conference attendees from five finalists chosen by the judges. These winners are identified in the Best of Category PDF.
