National Press Club

Wanted: The best newsletter journalism from 2017

February 9, 2018 | By Will Lester | wjlester@aol.com

Newsletter journalism offers important coverage of specific areas of the news, and the National Press Club wants to honor the best from newsletters in 2017.

The Club, a national leader among journalism organizations, is looking for your best work in newsletters for the Club’s journalism contest.

The deadline is April 1. Details on the different awards categories and how to enter the contest can be found online.

Entrants are encouraged to enter online, but if you prefer, the Club will accept entries mailed in the traditional way as long as they are postmarked before the deadline. Submitting an entry costs $50 but is free for Club members. The winner will get $750.

No matter how you enter, the most important thing is to make sure you submit your best journalism.

The awards will be presented at an annual awards dinner at the Club this summer.

The Club's contest includes awards for political reporting, regional reporting on Washington, international coverage, consumer reporting and online journalism. It also includes a group of awards for areas as diverse as reporting on the welfare of animals, coverage of the journalism industry, the aviation industry, problems facing the elderly and humor writing.
