Promoting Your TAPB Awards

Each year the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters ("TAPB") recognizes excellence and achievement in journalism with awards in various categories.

-- Promotional use of the word "Best" will apply only to first-place winners.

Any use of a reference to a TAPB award that in any way misleads the public about a TAPB award, including but not limited to distorted or exaggerated claims, is strictly prohibited.
