The National Press Club, Washington DC, is now Accepting Entries for the Best in Journalism Awards


WASHINGTON, DC, February 5, 2023 — The National Press Club’s annual journalism awards seek to recognize and honor professional journalists who produced outstanding work in 2022. The journalism award categories cover a wide range of topics and writing styles, including politics, breaking news, consumer news, foreign coverage, use of print, online, broadcast news techniques, and news photos.

Either journalists or their employers may submit entries. Non-traditional entrants are free to explain in supporting materials how they meet these journalistic criteria and should submit a statement explaining their editorial independence. The deadline to submit entries is May 15, 2023.

The winners will be honored during the 50th Annual National Press Club Journalism Awards Dinner at the National Press Club later this year. In addition, some awards include cash prizes up to $1,000 or free one year of membership with the National Press Club.

“Journalism sheds light on what’s happening in a community, industry or nation so that their audience can make informed decisions,” says Eileen Drage O’Reilly, president of the National Press Club. “The awards recognize the best journalists in different areas, including consumer news, breaking news, politics, and Washington regional reporting. Whether the journalist conveys their story via print, broadcast, digital, or photography, the winners are always very inspirational.”

It is only the second year of the Nell Minow Award for Cultural Criticism, named for Club member Nell Minow. The prize recognizes original critiques addressing the state of society or unique commentary on the human experience as related to arts, media, politics, identity, and community.

Founded in 1908, the National Press Club is the world’s leading professional organization for journalists. The Club has over 3,000 members worldwide, representing nearly every major news organization.
