The Region 10 Contest is coming your way –
– so now is a good time for you to start looking for contest entries, as I get things lined up with Omni and what have you.
The deadline this year is Feb. 19 at noon, PST. The website should be up and running by the weekend – I need to work out a few kinks, but we are almost there. This, of course, doesn’t mean that you can’t start getting your ducks in a row.
As you consider which stories and pictures to submit this year and reflect on what it means to you to participate and perhaps win something, please consider giving back to SPJ by volunteering to judge some of the entries we will be receiving in the judge swap.
Email Regional Director Pia Hallenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
The results will be released on May 17 – and here’s some good news for those on the east side of Region 10: there will be an awards banquet in Spokane this year. It will be on May 24 and I really hope you will come and join us. Stay tuned for details.
