The entry period for the Press Club's 34th annual Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards has begun. You can download the entry form and rules here.
One big change this year for print journalists is that instead of submitting clips, participants will now upload PDFs. No need to dig through year-old papers in search of your favorite story.
As always, the entries are judged by press clubs or Society of Professional Journalists chapters outside the Bay Area. No San Francisco Peninsula Press Club member will be involved in the judging.
Plaques for first, second and third place will be presented during an awards banquet in June.
The contest is open to all journalists and public relations professionals in the Bay Area. The fee per entry for non-members is $55, but if you become a member for $35, then the entry fee is $15 — a $5 savings.
Last year, the Press Club received 394 entries and presented 167 awards in nine divisions and 36 categories.
The deadline to enter is Feb. 28. For more information, e-mail Darryl Compton.
