Diamond Journalism Awards
After a three-year absence from the journalism contest field, the Arkansas Pro Chapter of SPJ returns this summer with the Diamond Journalism Awards.
This is a brand new contest, not just a revival, with more categories and a broader reach.
Taking its name from one of Arkansas’ identities — the Diamond State — the Diamond Journalism Awards will recognize outstanding journalism by professionals and students regardless of format, not just from Arkansas but beyond its borders.
The contest covers work published or broadcast between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.
You’ll be able to start submitting entries July 1. Entry deadline will be July 27.
More details in a few days.
