Advertising departments across Pennsylvania continue to produce outstanding classified and display ads, campaigns, and publications worthy of much recognition. Judges consider the objective, strategy and result as well as design and attractiveness for all ads.

The PNA Advertising Tearsheet Contest combines the classified and display contests into one. Entries in the 2014 contest must have been published in a Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association member organization between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014.  Deadline to submit entries will be Monday, July 14. Winners will be announced in mid-August.

Contest rules and category information for the 2014 Advertising Tearsheet Contest will be available by mid-June. Please check back then. In the meantime, feel free to review the rules and contest information from the 2013 contest outlined below.
