Annual Awards Contest now open for entries

The Idaho Press Club “Best of 2021” Annual Awards Contest is now open for entries! Go to and click on “Awards” for the full scoop, including categories and divisions, entry instructions and more. All entries take place online.

The deadline for contest entries this year is Jan. 21, but don’t wait until the last minute; you can enter right now and get it done (with one exception: General Excellence dates for the Publication Division will be announced on Jan. 15). This contest recognizes the best work in Idaho in 2021, and your work deserves this recognition!

All entries in this year’s contest must have been broadcast, telecast, or published in Idaho during the 2021 calendar year.

Entry fees this year are the same as last year: $20 per entry for current Idaho Press Club members, $15 for student members and $45 for non-members. You can join or renew your Press Club membership at the time you submit your contest entries; that likely will save you or your news organization money, and as a member, you’ll be supporting all the Press Club’s work to promote excellence in journalism, freedom of expression and freedom of information in Idaho for the next year.

This year’s contest includes numerous categories in these divisions: Student (print or broadcast); Publication (daily or weekly); Periodicals; Photography; Online; Television; Audio; Public Relations; and All Media Awards.
