BNC changed to one-tier system

CCNAÔÇÖs Board of Directors has voted to adopt a one-tier Better Newspapers Competition (BNC) General Excellence structure.

In a 12-5 vote, the board voted to go with an individual entry by circulation class system, as opposed to the two-tier system currently in place.

As the system now stands, entries to the General Excellence portion of the BNC must first win at the regional level.

The change would not take affect until the 2004 BNC.
