Contest entry form now available

The Peninsula Press Club today is posting its Call For Entries, which gives the rules and entry form for the 30th annual Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards Competition. The deadline is Feb. 28.
    This year, the club is adding a Web division with categories for:

      • overall Web site,
      • breaking news,
      • multi media, and
      • blog

    The Web division is open to all journalists in the 11-county Bay Area whose work is posted online, whether they are employed by a newspaper, broadcast station, Internet operation or are freelance. Obviously the news business is moving toward the Internet, and this new contest division recognizes that shift.
All journalists in the Bay Area are encouraged to submit entries to the contest. Participation in the Greater Bay Area Awards Competition has been on the upswing over the past five years. Since the 2002 competition, the number of entries has increased 32 percent to 578 for last year's contest.

On Saturday, June 2, this year's awards will be presented during a dinner banquet at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 1221 Chess Drive, Foster City.
