Contest time will be here soon; plan now to enter your best work!

It’s almost contest time! Now is the time to prepare to enter your best work in the Idaho Press Club’s “Best of 2015” contest, Idaho’s premier journalism contest.

We will open the website for entries in early December.   Watch for a notice in your mail which will also indicate your membership renewal status and check our website often to see more details about the opening date. The deadline for entries this year will be Jan. 21, 2016. There will be no extensions, so please plan ahead! Entry is done entirely online; please start early, to ensure you have all the time you need to gather, upload and enter your work and ensure it’s considered for recognition.

Entry fees this year are $20 per entry for Idaho Press Club members, and $15 for student members. Non-member fees are $45, or $30 for non-member students; fees include PayPal charges. If you’re not a member, consider joining right now! You can do this easily on our website,, and it could mean substantial savings for you on your contest entries, while also supporting all the good work the Idaho Press Club does.

For the broadcast and print general excellence categories, the randomly selected dates will be announced on Jan. 14, 2016
