Throughout the year, journalists, members of the press, authors, and publishers give their all to document and report important issues facing Catholics. To honor their hard work, the Catholic Press Association hosts the annual Catholic Press Awards, CPA Book Awards and the CPA Student Awards.

The CPA awards program is a great way to reward your staff for their efforts and increase exposure. Winners often note this accomplishment in their promotional material.

Each year, we accept submissions for the Catholic Press Awards and CPA Book Awards in January and February. The submission period for the CPA Student Awards begins in October. The judging period takes place in March. Results are announced in June during the annual Catholic Media Conference.

The Catholic Press Awards is a members only competition. Click here to learn more about CPA membership.

If you have any questions about participating in the awards program, email Kathleen at cpaawards@catholicpress.org.
