NOTE: Participation in the Ad Contest is essential to winning the coveted News Organization of the Year Awards. Beginning in 2023, in order to accumulate points toward NOY, your company MUST ENTER BOTH the Keystone Media Awards AND the Advertising Contest. You must enter both contests in order to earn points and to demonstrate your outstanding efforts across all facets of your news company. Companies not entering both contests will not be considered for NOY honors. Don’t be left out when the News Organization of the Year Awards are determined!
