CUPPIES FAQ

 

Enter the 2019 CUPPIES here.

 

When do the entries have to be produced?

Between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018

 

How do I reset my password?

Send an email to Elizabeth Hanson at elizabethhanson269@gmail.com.

 

I have multiple people from different departments submitting entries from around the university, is there just one password per university?

It depends. Some departments within a university have set separate accounts. Check the entry drop down drop to see if just the institution name is appearing or the department name. Please direct any questions to Elizabeth Hanson at elizabethhanson269@gmail.com. She can help set up multiple accounts if needed.

 

Is there early bird pricing?

No, it’s the same price per entry from the opening of the contest to the end.

 

Can agencies submit awards on behalf of a client?

Yes, but please coordinate with the client. There have been instances where we have received awards for the same video, printed piece, etc. by the agency and the institution.

 

Can agencies submit awards on behalf of a non-CUPRAP member client?

No. However, if the agency or institution wants to take out a CUPRAP membership, they would then be eligible to submit awards.

 

Do I pay first?

No.  First, enter the CUPPIES from the “enter your submissions at this link” on the CUPRAP website or go directly to the contest site at https://betternewspapercontest.com/CUPPIES2019  Once you upload your entries and finishing entering, click on the “calculate entry fee” hyperlink in the upper right of the screen. Once you arrive at your total, click the “$30 for each entry” hyperlink in the lower left of the screen and this will take you directly to the CUPRAP business portal where you will pay for your entries.  Make sure that you enter the total that is posted on your previous screen.

 

When are the awards announced?

Letters go out to all CUPPIES winners in mid to late January.

 

Do I have to be at the Awards Banquet to receive the award?

No. We will mail the award to you … but what fun is that?

 

If I am unable to attend the entire conference, am I able to attend just the Awards Banquet?

Yes. Please check the CUPRAP website, or keep an eye out for Spring Conference registration materials, which will include a special rate just for the Awards Banquet.

 

Can I accept an award on someone’s behalf?

Yes. CUPPIE committee members will reach out to all winners once they are confirmed, usually in late January or early February, and will ask for the name of the person accepting. If this changes between then and the Awards Ceremony on March 14, please reach out to a committee member as soon as possible to alert him/her to the change.
