Be a Volunteer Judge for SPJ

Are you an experienced media professional who has a knack for evaluating the work of others? If so, you might make a great volunteer judge for SPJ.

Our chapter is looking for experienced media professionals to evaluate contest entries from a variety of media fields in a variety of categories. If you have two to four hours to spare in the next month or so, you can judge entries from SPJ chapters around the country (those chapters are in turn judging our region’s contest entries). Please submit your Name, Email address, Current job, type of Media you work in (radio, online), and the expertise you have (photography, editorial writing, breaking news, etc.) and we will pair you up with some entries, directions and a deadline.


We try and give judges at least two weeks notice, and we ask that you have at least two years of experience in your field.

If you have any questions, please email us at

Thank you for giving back to journalism!
