And then there were TWO! Just that many weeks until contest deadline time

Two weeks.

After today, just two more Fridays. That’s all the time you have left to get registered for the 2020 KPA Advertising and News contests and then get your entries submitted.

Friday, October 16, will be here before you know it so you need to get it together and get your contest duties underway.

Registration is the key right now, because you can’t get to all the materials or do anything else until you are registered. It’s takes a minute or so, so go ahead and get that part out of the way. Then maybe I won’t have to be preaching more loudly next Friday!

To get registered and then read the rules, categories and entry process, go to

Both contests are open to all issues published between October 1, 2019, and September 30, 2020.

Again our thanx to Adam Yeomans and that Associated Press for sponsoring the second annual Jon Fleischaker Freedom of Information Award.

It’s Category 27 under the Editorial Contest particulars. See the particulars on this category and the new Journalist of the Year elsewhere in this week’s On Second Thought.
