In the 2018 contest, Lobachevsky University won in two categories: "Professional" and "Popularizer of Science". The list of the 2018 competition laureates also includes the press service of the Privolzhsky Research Medical University (Nizhny Novgorod) in the nomination "Expert of the Year". This year, the competition was held for the fifth time.

The Competition Commission evaluates the media activity and the quality of the news prepared by the press services of universities. The main criteria for assessing the work of the university press service include the frequency of publications, quality (completeness, content, structure, graphical components), the range of the target group (faculty, researchers, students, entrants, etc.). In the context of the nominations, the focus on the subject matter of the news flow is also taken into account (the percentage of thematic materials from the total number).
The All-Russian Competition "University Press Service" is held by the "Accreditation in Education" publishing house from 2013 with the aim of raising the level of information openness of the education system.
