Revised divisions affect MDDC Editorial Contest

Based on shifts in print circulation, the circulation numbers for Division B and C in the MDDC Editorial contest have been adjusted. Division A remains the same, comprised of dailies with print circulation from 75,000. Division B's daily circulation band was lowered from 30,000 to 20,000, making Division C all dailies under 20,000. This change will foster friendly competition within the divisions. Before the change, there would have been only one publication in Division B. This change results in 4 publications in Division A (unchanged), 4 publications in Division B and 6 publications in Division C. Although several publications have shifted divisions within the non-daily brackets of D, E and F, no division adjustments were needed to preserve competition. Please click for a full listing of publications, sorted by division. Please remember, the editorial contest deadline is January 28th at 11:59 p.m. For more information about the editorial contest, including links to the contest entry platform, click here. ... More
