That means we will be entering online through the National Federation of Press Women website. All you will need to do is go to the online contest, scroll through the list of states and select the North Dakota contest. NFPW is developing that website, and we will let you know when you can start entering.
The first step will be to register by providing your contact information. One nice feature of the online system is that once you register, your contact information automatically will transfer to each contest entry form. You won’t have to rekey it for every entry.
Another handy feature is that you will be able to save the entry form and go back into it as many times as necessary to complete it before submitting it. If you forget to complete an entry, our contest director will be able to view all North Dakota entries and send you a reminder before the entry deadline.
You will need to upload a PDF of your entry or provide a link to the material. Just make sure that if you are providing a link, it still will work when the judge views the entries.
Books are the exception. You still will be able to submit a book through the mail if you do not have a PDF or it is not
We will be paying a little lower contest fee. That’s because North Dakota is being grouped with other affiliates with similar contest fees for management purposes. Everyone in a group will have to pay the same fee.
The contest categories will remain the same as they were last year.
If you have any questions about how the contest will work or concerns about turning your work into PDFs, contact Ellen Crawford at 701-231-5391 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
