Entries have been submitted, judges’ scores are in, and soon those gleaming award plaques will be presented during this year’s MMPA Excellence Awards Gala on Thursday, November 1.

Online registration for the publishing and media industry’s party of the year is now open at www.mmpa.net.

You’ll soon learn if you’re among this year’s winners—although you’ll have to wait until the night of the gala to find out exactly where you’ve conquered the competition. But there’s no need to wait to make your reservations for the annual celebration.

It’s a night for revelry as we return to a stunning venue, Aria, in the heart of Minneapolis’ Warehouse District. It’s also an opportunity to win fine wines, special event tickets and more in MMPA’s annual silent auction—all while helping to support MMPA educational programming. Plus, drawings throughout the evening promise special prizes, just to keep everybody on edge.

Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres begin at 5:30 p.m., and at 7 p.m., our hosts for the evening will start summoning you to the podium to accept your awards. And as our evening draws to a close, the MMPA Excellence Awards Gala culminates with the announcement of the 2018 Magazine of the Year award.
