The Press Club of Long Island had previously pushed its media awards event to October, but out of an abundance of caution due to the coronavirus pandemic our board has made the decision to cancel the in-person event and release the winners and finalists via digital platforms in July.
It is unfortunate we will not be able to celebrate your journalistic achievement in person, but we will have a virtual campaign to keep the light shining on your effort and honors. When we release the winners and finalists, we will also release graphics and hashtags to use on your social platforms and encourage winners to submit images and videos celebrating their honors. We will highlight our special media award winners, who receive top honors, with specific stories, testimonials and graphics as well.
Additionally, PCLI is taking the step of not hosting a holiday party in December for the same reasons.
We hope you and your family continue to remain safe and healthy during these difficult times.
