In the Fall Digital Contests, students are evaluated against other entries from their FSPA district. View the fall 2016 winners


FSPA provides a yearly evaluation service for newspapers, yearbooks, literary magazines, broadcast programs and online publications. The focus of the evaluation service is to provide feedback that will enable students to improve their publications and broadcast programs.

The evaluations are done by outstanding publication advisers from other states’ press associations, professional journalists and journalism faculty members. Staffs and advisers receive a written critique, providing specific comments on strengths and weaknesses of their publications and broadcasts. The top publications receive All-Florida awards at our convention banquets.

Applications for newspaper, broadcast and online media evaluations are accepted online and are due by Friday, Feb. 1. Tip: Log into your account on this site before clicking to pre-populate information on your entry.

Entries in each require you to provide a written statement to the evaluators outlining special circumstances, areas of focus, etc.

Newspaper Entry -- Up to three issues, submitted by PDF

Broadcast Entry -- Submit URLs for three news shows

Online Media -- Submit URL to publication website

Yearbook and Literary Magazine critiques are conducted in the summer, with an early June submission deadline.

All-Florida publications: April 2018 | April 2017


These are specific categories within the Digital Contests. The 2019 prompts will be released on Sunday, Feb. 3, with submissions due by Friday, Feb. 8.
