The National Press Club's journalism contest includes an award for excellence in news photography.
The contest will recognize excellence for an individual news photo and the contest is limited to photos taken during 2018. Only one news photo should be submitted per entry and people are limited to three separate entries at most.
The photo awards are intended to honor professional photojournalists who have produced outstanding work, either independently for news organizations or as employees of those news organizations. Non-traditional entrants are free to explain in supporting materials how they meet these journalistic criteria.
The winner will win one year's free membership in the Press Club. Members may offer photo entries for free, while nonmembers pay $60 per entry. The winners will be honored at an awards dinner at the National Press Club this summer. The deadline for entries is April 15.
