Distinguished Writing Award

PNA Foundation Distinguished Writing AwardsSince 1987, the purpose of this award is to showcase quality writing. The award is judged solely on the quality of writing, without regard to circulation or category.

The contest is open to individual writers only – no team entries. Entries must include three pieces of work, and may include various types of articles. Work that has been entered in any other category (news, column, series, etc.) is acceptable. Any type of article may be entered, including those not listed in the entry categories.

This is a specialty category within the Keystone Media Awards.  Winner receives a plaque and a cash award.

Congratulations to the 2023 Distinguished Writing Award winner, Lynette Hazelton of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
