The Associated Press Managing Editors’ Innovator of the Year contest enters its fifth year in 2011, and it’s expanding to highlight newspaper innovations all year long.

Associated Press-member newspapers are now invited to enter their innovative work at any time. Judges will recognize one paper per month.

Find details and the entry platform at Every entry will also be considered for APME’s annual Great Ideas book.

Monthly winners will be recognized on and at the annual APME conference. Monthly winners also will be invited to compete for the annual Innovator of the Year contest, which is judged and presented at the APME conference.

"We’re pleased to take another big step in recognizing innovative work in our newsrooms,” said Bob Heisse, executive editor of the Centre Daily Times in State College, Pa., and APME vice president. "By putting a spotlight on journalism innovations monthly, we’ll acknowledge top work more often and it might spark ideas at other papers.”

The Seattle Times was named APME Innovator of the Year in 2010. Previous winners are the Fort Myers (Fla.) News-Press, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Oklahoman of Oklahoma City.
