We are having a great turnout this year but I know a few of you still need a little more time.
We have made one final extension to the deadline. You now have until 11pm CT Sunday April 10 to get your entries in! This will give you the weekend to put the finishing touches on entries without having to battle your normal work-day deadline, too!
This is the most affordable statewide contest of its kind. Just $30 per entry for members and $50 for non-members. Student entries are just $15 each. You can become an annual member by going to our homepage,Houstonpressclubonline.org and clicking ‘Membership.’ Individual members also qualify for discounted tickets for the Lone Star Awards banquet and the Gridiron Show fundraiser in the fall. It is important to notify us by email if you become a member (firstname.lastname@example.org) so your entries will be discounted.
We are also offering an ‘Outlet Membership’ for organizations which allows for all their employees to be counted as temporary members (although they will not qualify for discounts to the awards banquet.)
We have teamed up with BetterBNC to handle the entries, and the process is simple. Just go to www.betternewspapercontest.com, and click ‘OPEN CALL LOGIN.’ If you have participated in previous years, just log in again, or click ‘Create Your Open Call Account’ to get started.
Good luck to you all!
President, Houston Press Club
