Can I nominate myself for awards?
Yes. However, some special categories like Journalist of the Year work better when you’re sponsored by an editor or news director. Please check the submission rules for full details.
Who judges the contest?
Volunteers in other SPJ chapters from around the country judge our contest in order to keep the process impartial. In exchange, SPJ-Indiana chapter members are recruited to judge other chapters’ award contests. If you would like to volunteer to be a judge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long has this contest been around?
The contest has honored the best of the best for more than 37 years. This is the 38th annual contest.
Can I submit entries online?
Yes. All entries except books should be submitted online.
