Have you ever heard of these awards? If not, allow us to enlighten you! LDSPMA stands for Latter-day Saint Publishing & Media Association. According to their website, they are an “international organization for members and friends of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who work in media and publishing or seek to do so.

Every year, the LDSPMA wishes to “encourage, support, and applaud high-quality publications.” These publications could be books, blogs, videos, podcasts, films, and more. The possibilities are endless. Do you know a great creator? Well then, what are you waiting for?

Can I nominate anything?

The content does not need to be related to the Church. For example, you could nominate a great romance novel as long as at least one member of the team is a member of the Church. None of the collaborators have to be a member of the LDSPMA. This contest is open to so many people!

Submissions for this year’s awards must be made by April 30, 2020. In order to recommend a work, you must use their submission form. You have some time, but don’t put this off!

What’s the prize?

Winners of the 2020 LDSPMA Praiseworthy Awards will receive a certificate and digital badge to display for all the world to see. It’s fantastic publicity for the members of this community.

No, the award isn’t a ginormous check or incredible pizza party. However, speaking from experience, the simple prize of recognition means far more in the publishing community. A compliment on a job well done is all that is really needed. Please, don’t hesitate to submit a form!
