CALL FOR ENTRIES EXTENDED: Excellence in Journalism Awards

The Detroit chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is calling for entries for the Excellence in Media awards. We are also accepting nominations for Journalist of the Year and Young Journalist of the Year, as well as applications for a Laurain Scholarship.

SPJ Detroit is presenting awards for outstanding journalism in Michigan publications, broadcast, digital and social media during 2022.

The contest is now open. The deadline is Monday, Feb. 27, 2023, for all journalism entries. The deadline for JoY, YJoY and Scholarships is Feb. 28.

NOTE: The contest now has four fee levels. The default fee is $50 for non-SPJ members. You will need to email the Administrator if you qualify for a lower fee level prior to submitting entries. They are: $35 – SPJ members, $35 – student non-SPJ members, $30 – small newsrooms (less than 10 employees), $25 – for student SPJ members. We will pre-adjust the default fee for “known” SPJ members.  At least one person within the media organization submitting entries, must be a member, for that organization to quality for the SPJ member rate.

Winners will be announced in late April or early May 2023.
