Public Notice Journalism Award Logo

This award recognizes excellence in journalism that draws reader attention to public notices.

For purposes of this award, newspaper public notices are defined as those announcements or disclosures the law requires a private party or government entity to publish in or through a statutorily qualified newspaper. Stories must cite the public notice requirement and refer readers to the publication in which it appeared. Online references must include links. If the notice requirement was not met or was deficient, story must explain how and why notice was deficient. Stories may have been published in print or digitally or both.  PDF copies may be provided and/or working links to the stories. Include a short cover letter introducing the story and/or stories being submitted.

Winning entry from Pennsylvania will be entered into the national competition to vie for the national award of $500, in conjunction with the Public Notice Resource Center. Presentation of national winner will be made at a recognized national association event in 2020.  

Entries must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 12, 2019.
