It’s Contest Time!

The 2015 SPJ Northwest Excellence in Journalism Contest is officially open for applications! If you are a journalist working for professional print, broadcast, or online media in SPJ Region 10 (Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana), we’d love to see your work.

Based on member and entrant feedback from last year, the 2015 contest committee has implemented several changes. Some things to know: 

—Region 10 is working with a new contest vendor this year. We are hoping this change leads to more user-friendly interface and improves communication with contestants.
—All entries, including General Excellence, can only be submitted digitally.
—All entries this year are $20 for regular categories, and $50 for General Excellence.
—We have combined the Non-daily and Alt Weekly categories to make them more competitive.
—We have added a new daily print category: DAILY Very Large (A daily print and/or online publication with staff of 41 or more). The daily print competition is now as follows:
DAILY-Small: A daily print and/or online publication with staff of 10 or fewer
DAILY-Medium: A daily print and/or online publication with staff of 11-25
DAILY-Large: A daily print and/or online publication with staff of 26-40
DAILY-Very Large: A daily print and/or online publication with staff of 41 or more
—We have added more visual categories to better recognize the work of visual journalists.

The contest deadline: Feb. 15, 2016 at 5 p.m. PST. Winners will be announced later this year on the Region 10 blog. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at spjnwcontest@gmail.com.
