NEW COVID-19 News coverage category for the 2020 COPAs
The 2020 COPA Entry Rules have been posted and it will include this year a special COVID-19 news coverage category that will be free to enter by any any online publisher. The COPAs have adapted this year’s awards to reflect the current times as many publishers are seeing a soft advertising market. 


There is hope for a sharp rebound in advertising for all the publishers, but we are experiencing the sharpest economic contraction of our generation that will be followed by an uneven recovery according to the BDC. It may take in the form of a “V”, “U” or “L” shape highlighting best and worst case scenarios. We are hopeful for a “U” shape recovery in the advertising market by the fall, but some may experience a “L” shape depending on the industry sector. The COPAs will become a valuable instrument to help promote the industry as the ecomony rebounds..




The eligibility requirements for the 2020 COPAs will be any content our ad campaign produced between October 1, 2019 and  Sept 30, 2020 can enter the 2020 COPAs. The entry fees this year have been lowered to $75, with the early bird at $50. Independent publishers, non-profits, ethnic media and freelance journalists can enter for $50. The Best COVID-19 News Coverage Category will be free to any publisher to enter and Academic institutions will be able to enter 1 free entry.
