International Newspaper Carrier Day is held each year in conjunction with National Newspaper Week (NNW), an annual week dedicated to celebrating the impact of newspapers to communities large and small.

National Newspaper Week is October 2-8, 2017, with International Newspaper Carrier Day falling on that Saturday, October 7, 2017.

NNW is sponsored by Newspaper Association Managers, Inc., the consortium of North American trade associations representing the industry on a state and provincial, regional and national basis.

This year’s NNW theme is “Real Newspapers … Real News!” The aim is to applaud and underscore newspaper media’s role as the leading provider of news in print, online or via mobile devices.

The News Media Alliance produces an ad for International Newspaper Carrier day each year for members to run in their newspapers as a thank-you to their hard-working newspaper carriers.
