Competition Information

Magazines may compete in any number of the available categories.
Individual entries in genre categories are judged according to appropriate genre conventions; these nominated pieces compete for first, second, third, and honorable mention awards within their region (plaque for first place, paper award for others). Only nominated pieces will be considered for awards. Winning pieces may be posted to the CCHA website.

The Best Magazine category is judged holistically on the criteria of aesthetics, correct editing, ease of navigation, and strength of student work. Magazines compete within their “weight” class (determined by the enrollment and magazine funding levels of the participating colleges). Awards will be given for both first and second places within each region and nationally. Winners will be announced by August 15th.
