Submissions will be accepted from Wed., Jan. 4 until 11:59 p.m. March 1 for all categories except the Awbrey — which, because of the extra documentation needed for this prestigious local journalism award, closes a week later. Any journalist who lives or works in New Jersey or who reports about New Jersey or the region is eligible to participate. Cost is $25 per entry for non-SPJ members and $20 for SPJ members. (To join SPJ, click here.)

Want to help? Our contest (like our chapter) is run completely by volunteers. Submissions are judged by members of another SPJ chapter, with whom we swap entries. If you’re interested in helping us judge contest submissions from our SPJ trading partner, drop us a line with your contact information and journalism bona fides at firstname.lastname@example.org.
