The 2021 WPM Contest is closed!
Quill and Scroll is done receiving entries for the 2021 Writing, Photo and Multimedia Contest. We hope to have all the winners announced by April 1, 2021, possibly sooner. As always, we will name the top three places and honorable mentions. The total number of winners will equal at least 10 percent of the total entries.
If you didn’t enter the NME critique service now, you may do so later in spring 2021. That page will be updated soon.
The final deadline for WPM entries was Feb. 5, 2021.
See all the categories to the right. By clicking on the link, you can learn about each category’s entry criteria.
For the fourth consecutive year, this is an all-digital contest, so all entries must be accompanied by a link to a digital file or folder that houses the entry.
The first step is to click the button on the upper left of this page, which will take you to the School Entry Form. That is the form filled out by someone representing the school or professional news organization, and who can arrange for payment of the entries.
When you are finished with the School Entry Form, hit “Submit” at the bottom, and you will be taken to the Student Entry Form, which allows for your first 30 entries. When you are done with that, hit “Submit” for that form. If you have fewer than 30 entries, you can always hit “NO” when asked the question “Do you have another entry” and hit “Submit.”
If you have more than 30 entries per school, you will get a prompt to go back to the Student Entry Form and proceed with the next 30 entries.
You may pay by credit card, check or purchase order. The link to credit card payment is also in the button at the top of this page. No unpaid-for entry will be eligible to win. If you have questions about payment, contact [email protected], or call 319-335-3457.
