Calling all female journos in the New York metro area: it’s time to submit your work for the Newswomen’s Club of New York Front Page awards. The application process is now open for work that was published or broadcast between September 1, 2013 and August 1, 2014. There are new submission categories this year — there are categories for online, newspaper, magazine, photography, wires, and other reporting. In each category, they accept entries for spot reporting, opinion pieces, digital video, blog posts, photo essays, fashion, science, and sports reporting, among others. You can see where you fit in here. Basically, if you work in news in any format in or around New York, you have something you can submit.
There are also two memorial awards: the Martha Coman award for best new journalist, which is open to all categories, and the Marie Colvin award to honor reporting done in a foreign market by a New York journalist. Martha Coman was one of the first female reporters for the New York Herald and a founding member of The New York Newspaper Women’s Club. Marie Colvin was killed in Syria in 2012 while covering the war for The Sunday Times.
You can apply and find out more information about the awards here.
The awards will be presented at a gala this November in New York City. Submissions are due September 5, so get a move on.
