Best of Indiana contest entry deadline extended to Feb. 11

The entry deadline for this year’s Best of Indiana journalism contest is being extended until Monday, Feb. 11.

The contest aims to recognize the state’s top professional and student journalism for 2018 in all formats – print, broadcast and online -- with dozens of categories in reporting, visuals, design, multimedia and books.

We’ve kept the entry fees the same for most categories ($20 for professionals and $15 for students) — but we have cut in half the fees to submit nominations for Journalist of the Year, Student Journalist of the Year and Story of the Year. Nominations for those awards can come from newsrooms, but any Indiana journalist can submit an entry for a colleague or themselves. Freelancers are welcome to enter any category — and anyone can submit their own entries for Indiana’s largest open journalism contest.

For all the rules and category descriptions:
