Awards contest deadline extended to FRIDAY, MARCH 5

There’s still time to enter the 2010 SPJ San Diego-Area Journalism Contest – we’ve extended the deadline by one week to Friday, March 5 at 5 p.m.

The contest entries have been pouring in, and we’re excited that some new-to-the-contest media outlets have jumped into the competition this year. Get in on the action and submit your best work in print, online, TV or radio by this Friday’s deadline.

The contest includes 126 categories in nine divisions, plus five special awards that come with cash prizes: the Sol Price Prize for Responsible Journalism, the First Amendment Award, the Herbert Lockwood “Woody” Award for humor writing, the Diversity Prize, and the James Julian Memorial Award for community service reporting.

And, new this year,  SPJ will be honoring the Journalist of the Year. Stay tuned for more information about how to nominate your favorite journalism colleagues.

SPJ San Diego Pro Chapter members get a discount on the awards contest entry fee, and non-members who submit an application and check for their chapter and national SPJ dues with their entries also qualify for the member discount.

Winners will be recognized at the annual awards banquet this summer.
