The Keystone Press Awards reinforce excellence by individuals in the newspaper profession, by recognizing journalism that consistently provides relevance, integrity and initiative in serving readers, and faithfully fulfills its First Amendment rights/responsibilities.  Further, the Keystone Press Awards stimulate journalists to improve their craft and ultimately improve their community.

Complete 2015 contest rules, entry instructions and category descriptions will be available in early December. 

All entries must be submitted via the quick and easy online contest system, BetterBNC, by 11:59 p.m., on Monday, January 26, 2015. Winners will be announced in mid-April, and will be honored at the Keystone Press Awards Banquet during the Pennsylvania Press Conference on Saturday, May 30, 2015, at The Wyndham Gettysburg.
