MISSION: Each year the Press Club highlights Arizona journalists who produce the most outstanding, hard-nosed, beautiful and eye-opening work in the state. Their work is judged by talented professionals from around the country (think Pultizer, ASNE, APME winners) who expertly choose the best of the best. We hope you’ll enter your great work from 2013 and be recognized for your effort!
WHO CAN COMPETE: Any reporter, designer, editor, copy editor or other journalist that works in the production of news for an Arizona newspaper, online news site, periodical or news service whose primary purpose is to inform the public rather than to sell products or promote a business, government, nonprofit organization or ideology. Advocacy groups that produce news are not eligible. Work produced for publications or websites based outside Arizona are not eligible.
–Affordable entry fees start at just $10.
–We have something for everyone – whether you work at a small newspaper, big weekly, online only, etc.
–Dozens of categories, from investigative to blogging to page-one design and illustration.
–An awards party will be held in May 2014.
