Communications Contest

What is the Alaska Professional Communicators (APC) Communications Contest?

For more than 30 years our Alaska affiliate of NFPW has offered members a contest in many categories of communications, including:

  • print journalism
  • public relations
  • broadcasting
  • writing for the web
  • literary (books, magazines, poetry)
  • educational pursuits

This year we have new categories like Personal Essay, Social Media Campaign, and Ghostwriting. The entry process has also been simplified to make it easier for you to get your entries in.
