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

Congratulations to the 2019 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.  We will celebrate this award-winning work virtually this year, throughout the week of May 11.

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 during the week of May 11.   

During our week-long 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, Designer of the Year, Salesperson of the Year Editorial Rookie of the Year, and Courage in Journalism.
