Each year, Christian communicators are invited to submit their best work to the annual CCCA Awards. They compete with other individuals and publications for first-, second- and third-place awards in approximately 30 categories. Some wins also earn cash prizes.

The contest for work published in 2022 welcomed entries until Feb. 28, 2023. Winning entries for work published in 2022 were announced May 26, 2023 as noted below.
