2016 National Press Club Journalism Awards

Are You One of the Nation's Top Journalists?

Deadline: April 1, 2016

Through our annual journalism awards, the National Press Club seeks to recognize and honor professional journalists who produced outstanding work in 2015 for the public, either independently or as employees of editorially independent news entities. In all cases, judges will give weight to demonstration of individual enterprise, fairness, accuracy and objectivity. Content produced for house organs, pamphlets, theses or reports will not be considered, nor will advocacy outlets of interest groups such as trade associations, consumer organizations or government agencies. Entries may be submitted by either journalists or their employers. Non-traditional entrants are free to explain in supporting materials how they meet these journalistic criteria, and should submit a statement explaining their editorial independence.

The entry period for the 2016 Awards has ended.
