2013 PCLI Media Awards Call for Entries

It’s time again for the Press Club of Long Island’s Annual Media Awards Competition, recognizing outstanding work in print, broadcast and online journalism in 2013.

The competition was reorganized in 2013 with new divisions and categories. All entries again will be submitted online at BetterBNC.com

With many media and journalists now producing work on multiple media platforms, after many years under the old format all the divisions were reorganized last year. There are seven divisions again this year: Narrative, Video, Radio, Visual, Social Media, Student Journalism, and Special Awards and Scholarships. Each division includes categories organized by topic.

Descriptions of divisions:

  • Anything written and published in either daily or weekly newspapers, magazines and stories appearing online should now be entered in the Narrative division under the appropriate category.
  • Any original video broadcast formats including television, cable television and online television and video should now be entered in the Video division under the appropriate category.
  • Any original radio broadcasts and podcasts should now be entered in the Radio division under the appropriate category.
  • Any original published images, photographs, illustrations, layouts and cartoons should now be entered in the Visual division under the appropriate category.
  • Any blogs and Twitter, Facebook and Instagram postings maintained by individuals and organizations, should now be entered in the Social Media division under the appropriate category.
  • Any student-produced journalistic work should now be entered in the Student Journalism division under the appropriate category.
  • The Special Awards and Scholarships division (formerly called All Media Awards) includes the awards for Outstanding LI Journalist, Robert W. Greene Public Service Award, Phil Spahn Memorial Award, James Murphy Cub Reporter of the Year and the college and high school scholarship awards.

Panels of judges from other regions will choose the winners, except the Special Awards and Scholarships, which will be judged by the PCLI board.
