Send your best news photo from 2017 to the National Press Club

February 19, 2018 | By Will Lester |

The National Press Club’s journalism contest will present an award for excellence in news photography again this year, so be sure to enter your best work.

The contest will recognize excellence for an individual news photo and the contest is limited to photos taken during 2017. Only one news photo should be submitted per entry and people are limited to 3 separate entries at most.

The winner will win one year’s free Club membership. Members may offer photo entries for free, while non-members pay $50 per entry.

The photo awards are intended to honor professional photojournalists who have produced outstanding work, either independently for news organizations or as employees of those news organizations. Non-traditional entrants are free to explain in supporting materials how they meet these journalistic criteria.

The winners will be honored at an awards dinner at the Club this summer. The deadline for entries is April 1. For the website for the contest, see here.
