31 Dec Contest Info. Coming Soon!
We are already getting questions about our 2009 Excellence in Journalism contest. We will announce details by Monday, January 11, 2010, but until we do, here are a few changes to expect:
– We are merging the magazine and nondaily contests with the regional contest. What does this mean to you? One contest, less confusion.
– Magazines in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana will be eligible to enter the contest this year. In the past, only those in Western Washington were eligible.
– Nondaily newspapers in Alaska, Washington, Idaho and Montana will be eligible to enter the regional contest as well. Because Oregon has its own nondaily newspaper contest, however, nondailies in that state aren’t eligible.
– We are taking the regional contest online for all categories, though some (such as broadcast) may need to submit other formats.
– The rules will be streamlined for easier understanding.
– Contest deadline for ALL contests will be Friday, February 19, 2010.
Details coming soon. Please hold your questions until the contest information is posted.
