The award is given to Washington-based news reporters who cover Congress with an eye toward explaining coverage for a regional audience. The competition is open to any reporter for a daily newspaper, online publication or wire service who qualifies for membership in the Congressional Press Galleries. The award is administered by the Washington Press Club Foundation and the Standing Committee of Correspondents and includes a $3,000 cash prize. The winner will be recognized at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner on Feb. 5, 2014.
