Each year, the Associated Church Press honors faith communicators’ best work with the ACP “Best of the Church Press” awards. New and established newspapers, newsletters, magazines, journals, news services, electronic publications, blogs, and websites earn recognition for the work they do, as do the many excellent entries in social media and visual communications.

The religious landscape has changed drastically in the past few years and the role of faith-based journalism has changed along with it. From the ways in which we gather to the ways we get our messages across, the role of communicators has been reinvented and reimagined.

Winners will be announced at our in-person convention being held in Chicago, April 19-21, 2023.

Entries for the 2022 Best of the Church Press awards will be made using the online submission and payment system at https://www.judgify.me/ACP2022.

Deadline for submissions HAS BEEN EXTENDED to midnight (EST) February 27, 2023.
