About the Alabama Media Professionals Annual Communications Contest

All entries winning First Place may then compete in the National Federation of Press Women (NFPW) Communications Contest. However, entrants must be members of AMP and NFPW to compete at the national level. Join here.

The AMP Communications Contest rewards excellence in communications in print, broadcast, web, PR, and marketing categories. Entries are judged by leaders in their fields of expertise.

The contest is open to any professional communicator in Alabama—whether a member of AMP or not. It is an opportunity to get some statewide, and possibly national, recognition. You will also benefit from the judges' comments on your work.
