NEW TODAY FROM APME
New categories this year in APME Excellence Awards
What's new with this year's APME Excellence Awards? We've added a new category: Best Mobile Platform. This new category will honor a news organization that produced or made significant improvements to a mobile application or platform in 2013.
Four of the categories in this year's contest offer monetary awards: the Seventh Annual Innovator of the Year Award for newspapers, the Best of Show in the Public Service Awards, the Fourth Annual Gannett Foundation Award for Innovation in Watchdog Journalism and the Tom Curley Sweepstakes Award in the First Amendment Awards.
And, we've also changed our entry period to a calendar year. All awards will be presented for journalism published or launched between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013. Because of the change in the entry period, first-place winners in the previous contest (running from May 1, 2012- April 30, 2013) are not eligible to enter their winning work in the current contest. All other entries are eligible and will be considered by judges.
Don't forget, the entry deadline is March 31.
The awards will be presented at the ASNE/APME Conference Sept. 15-17 in Chicago.
