Virginia Communications Professionals Honored At State And Local Level

Virginia Communications Professionals Honored At State and Local Level

The NFPW Professional Communications contest honors communicators throughout the United States for their professional work during the previous year.

The first tier of the contest is run at the state level, in this case Virginia Professional Communicators. First place winners at the state level move on to the national contest.

VPC winners were honored during the group’s spring conference April 27 at the University of Richmond.

“The winners were selected by fourteen professional judges, whose expertise spans everything from poetry to media relations,” said Julie Campbell, VPC’s awards chair. “The judges evaluated eighty-four entries submitted by twenty contestants.”

The final results included nineteen contestants with sixty-six winning entries. The members who earned a first-place spot, including Joan Tupponce, a regular contributor to Richmond Family Magazine, moved on to the national competition.

Tupponce has been a regular contributor to RFM since the magazine was founded in 2009. She also writes stories about Richmond-area people, places, and ideas for Just Joan: RVA Storyteller at RFMonline.com.
