The contest, governed by the Association’s Editorial and Advertising Committees, admitted nearly 1,500 entries from 48 member publications among 85 categories. There are seven divisions in the contest, which group member publications into daily and non-daily print and online-only categories, then further group them by circulation. One Best in Show award is given in each category across all divisions. These entries were judged by news media professionals at the Virginia Press Association.
