NEW FOR 2022

*2021 Awards Clarification:
As you review all categories and consider your body of work, please note the word 'feature' has been replaced with 'story'. This is meant to be interpreted to be inclusive of articles, posts, columns, as well as features. 

For all WRITTEN WORD categories:
As you select stories for this year’s awards, we want to acknowledge that many of us continue to have fewer assignments and the work that we’ve done has often had a Covid-19 focus. Rather than having a Covid-specific category (and overloading it)—you’re encouraged to put your stories in the best-fitting existing category. Judges will be advised that some stories may stretch the definition of the categories—but we want to be sure that you can put forward your best work.

WRITTEN WORD changes for this year:

  • We have removed: Best Family & Partner Story. However, you are encouraged to include a family/partner angle for any of the written word categories. 


WRITTEN WORD, VISUAL & BROADCAST:

  • We have added the Emerging and Broadcast Media category. 

 

VISUAL:

  • No changes have been made to this category. 

 

SUBMISSIONS

  • You may enter as many categories as you like up to ten (10) entries.
  • You may enter up to 2 (two) submissions per category.
