NAPPA believes a good product is always good, so there are no restrictions on year of release to enter. Plus, a NAPPA-winning product remains a winner for the life of the product.

Early entries have a chance to be selected as a “NAPPA Entry of the Week,” a staff-pick which is spotlighted on NAPPA.Parenthood.com.

The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) program began in 1990 as a consumer awards program for children's media, spanning such categories as books and magazines, toys and games, music, videos, software, and storytelling/spoken-word recordings. Expert judges within each category review and select the best submissions to receive recognition as either Gold or Honors Award winners. Each year, the winners are announced prior to the holiday season in more than 45 regional parenting publications and online at NAPPA.Parenthood.com.

Award-winning albums are reviewed annually by John Wood, NAPPA’s lead music judge and longtime music reviewer for eight regional parenting magazines. He co-created and performed more than 7,000 shows with the popular children's entertainment group J.P. Nightingale, and is the founder of kidzmusic.com.
