HOW TO ENTER
Local Media Association is again teaming up with NewspaperToolbox to provide an online entry platform for the 2012 Advertising and Promotions Contest. The online contest entry system is designed to make the process of entering contests quicker, easier and less costly than the previous method of mailing 'hard-copy' material. It also allows Local Media Association to electronically archive all entries and make them available for review.

Manual mail-in entries will still be accepted and must be postmarked by Friday, June 1, 2012, and received at LMA Headquarters no later than June 8, 2012.

All entries must have been published in your newspaper(s) between April 1, 2011 - March 31, 2012. You may submit as many entries as you like. The majority of the contest categories are divided into two classes, dailies and weeklies, with further breakouts based on circulation.
