The PNA Foundation Advertising Contest honors advertising departments across Pennsylvania that continue to produce outstanding printed and digital classified and display ads, campaigns, and special publications and efforts worthy of recognition.

Entries are now being accepted in the 2023 PNA Foundation Advertising Contest! All entries and online payments must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Feb 13, 2023, via our online contest system, BetterBNC.  


Winners will be notified by late March. Certificates will be awarded for all first place, second place and honorable mention honors, with the option to purchase plaques.

Details about the awards presentation will be available in early 2023.

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!
