WASHINGTON, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Press Club wants to see your best reporting on diplomatic and foreign affairs for 2016 in its annual journalism contest.
The winning entry will get the Edwin M. Hood Award for Diplomatic Correspondence. The award is named for Hood, a distinguished diplomatic correspondent for The Associated Press and a founding member of the National Press Club. Entrants must demonstrate an understanding of American foreign policy and how foreign affairs affect those policies.
The award has print/online and broadcast categories. Entries can be a single article or broadcast or a series of articles or broadcasts (maximum of 5) that will be judged as one unit.
Include a letter detailing how and why the piece or series broke fresh ground or how it brought clarity and understanding of foreign policy issues to the U.S. audience. There is a $750 prize for the winner in each category.
The deadline to submit entries is April 1, and the contest is open to Press Club members and non-members. Offering entries is free for NPC members, and costs $50 for non-members.
