Should 2015 Oregon Writers Colony Writing Contest have an apostrophe in it somewhere? If not, can you explain the reason?

I cannot explain either the lack of apostrophe or the word "colony."

I thought maybe it was something like Publishers Weekly.

Anyway, now you have two questions to ask when you get to the colony.

I suspect it is very much like the un-apostrophized Publishers Weekly.
