Election and Campaign contest category added

At popular request, we’re taking the unusual step of adding a special category to honor top journalism covering Indiana’s tumultuous 2016 political season. The new Election and Campaign Coverage category is meant to recognize outstanding political campaign and Election Day-related reporting.

The new category has been added to all divisions of the Best of Indiana Journalism Contest -- so coverage in broadcast, print and online formats by both professionals and students can be entered. We continue to have our Government and Politics category that recognizes coverage of the functions of our government institutions and political figures.

We hope this new category will capture some of the election drama Hoosiers saw over the past year.
