National Press Club wants to see your best news photos from 2018

March 27, 2019 | By Will Lester |

Time to get recognition for your excellent news photography.

The National Press Club’s journalism contest includes an award for excellence in news photography.

The contest will recognize excellence for an individual news photo taken during 2018. Only one news photo should be submitted per entry and people are limited to three separate entries.

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 winner will win one year’s free Club membership. Members may offer photo entries for free, while nonmembers pay $60 per entry. The winners will be honored at an awards dinner at the Club this summer. The deadline for entries is April 15.

Details about the contest can be found by clicking here.

Anyone with questions about the awards, should write Will Lester at or call 410-271-7020.
