The 2020 ANA BNC and Excellence in Advertising Awards
A virtual presentation

Due to COVID-19 cautions and restrictions the Arizona Newspaper Association’s annual convention had to be cancelled and the awards ceremony reimagined. We wish to thank our members who participated in the contests, the New Mexico Press Association for judging, and everyone who helped produce the live presentation on our Facebook page. Thank you for watching our live stream event on Oct. 15, 2020.
