Calling all editors, photographers, ad directors and other journalists:

As the HSPA Foundation awaits the results of Indiana’s editorial and advertising contests, the Foundation needs judges for reciprocal judging in the 2012 Minnesota Newspaper Association Better Newspaper Contest.

As in Indiana’s competition, most categories are online. A few will be hard copies. No one needs to travel to a common site.

Judges will receive entries the week of Oct. 15 with a deadline of Nov. 2. Please visit www.HSPAfoundation.org/contest-judging to sign up.

The Foundation needs more judges than usual this year for MNA’s large contest. Some find judging a real learning experience and an opportunity to pick up ideas from other newspapers.

If your newspaper competed in the HSPA Foundation contest this year, please help reciprocate by judging in this one.

The Foundation recently emailed requests for volunteer judges.

For more information call HSPA Foundation at (317) 803-4772.
