Digital Contests allow Florida student journalists to showcase their work in a variety of categories such as writing, design, photography, art, broadcast and multimedia journalism. Judges assign a numeric score to each and provide written feedback (Category Criteria). We recognize All-Florida winners online and name a Best of the Best at convention for each category. 

The 2019 contests have closed; see link at right for a list of All-Florida winners and Best of the Best finalists.


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.

The entry window has closed for Newspaper, Online Media and Broadcast critiques. Yearbook and Literary Magazine critiques are conducted in the summer, with an early June submission deadline.


These are specific categories within the Digital Contests. 2019 prompts can be found on page 5 of the Spring Digital Contest Information document above.
