Proudly Serving Maryland, Delaware and D.C. Newspapers Since 1908

2018 MDDC Contest Winners

Congratulations to the 2018 Contest Winners!

The Maryland | Delaware | DC Press Association is proud to announce the winners of the annual Contest in the list below.  These winners represent the best work of member publications in Maryland, Delaware and DC.  Publications are divided into seven categories based on circulation, plus a special division for SPJ members.  Entries are judged, in most cases, by a sister press association.  Celebrate this award-winning work at the Annual Conference, Local News Builds Communities, Friday, May 10th at the Doubletree by Hilton in Annapolis.

The judges were very impressed with the caliber of writing in the contest and the competition was stiff! We will post all of the winning entries on our website after the event.   

The press association will celebrate all of the winners at the Editorial Awards Program, May 10, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. During that program, we will reveal the individual winners and their placements, the Best in Show category winners and News Media Organization of the Year.  We will also recognize the James S. Keat FOI Award, the Michael S. Powell High School Journalist of the Year, Editorial Rookie of the Year, and our newest award, Courage in Journalism.

Don’t miss this event, which showcases the best of our industry! Our keynote speaker is Major Garrett, CBS News’ chief Washington correspondent. Sponsorship opportunities are available. To register or sponsor, please click here.
