Anyone who lives or works in Connecticut is eligible to enter. Work must be published from January 1 through December 31, 2019.
The 2019 contest will be ALL electronic. No hard copy submissions will be accepted and no offline payments will be accepted.
CT Press Club members: The fee is $25 for the first entry and $15 for each additional entry. The non-member fee is $30 for the first entry and $20 for each additional entry. You can join the CT Press Club when you enter the contest. You do not have to join the NFPW to enter the local competition.
The early deadline to submit entries — and avoid a one-time additional fee of $25 — is Jan. 28, 2020. The final deadline for books is Feb. 4 and the final deadline for all other entries is Feb. 11.
