20 Jan The SPJ Northwest Excellence in Journalism Contest is here! Enter by Feb. 12
Start collecting your best work! The 2014 SPJ Northwest Excellence in Journalism Contest is now live and awaiting your entries.
For more than 20 years, SPJ has honored excellence in journalism with an annual contest recognizing stories and visuals published in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Don’t wait! The deadline for submitting entries is Feb. 12.Â
You’ll notice some significant updates to the contest categories this year as we look to keep pace with an evolving industry. Among the biggest changes:
- We no longer have a separate â€œOnlineâ€ category, because the Internet is an integral part of all we do. Daily print and online media is now judged together in a merged category called â€œDaily Print and Online.â€
- We have combined all photos, cartoons, graphics and videos (except television) in a â€œVisualsâ€ category.
- Daily print and online entries are now divided by newsroom size into three groups: small (staff of 15 or fewer), medium (between 16 and 50) and large staff (51 or more).
