Best of Indiana contest open for entries

The Best of Indiana journalism contest is back for a new year. The Indiana Pro Chapter is ready to recognize the state’s top professional and student journalism for 2017 in all formats – print, broadcast and online.

We have dozens of categories in reporting, visuals, design, multimedia and books. We’ve streamlined some of the categories and circulation divisions in order to equalize the competition for top awards. The entry deadline is Feb. 4 – and we’ve kept the entry fees the same for all categories ($20 for professionals and $15 for students for most entries).

Your contest entries help make the chapter’s college scholarship possible. We awarded $2,500 scholarships last spring to two top Indiana collegiate journalists. We look forward to doing the same during the April 27 awards banquet at the Indianapolis Marriott North. Mark your calendars to celebrate the Best of Indiana!
