ASNE annually recognizes excellence in journalism

The ASNE Awards, which encompass nine different categories, honor the best in print, online and mobile content. Inspired by former ASNE President Eugene Patterson and started in 1979, the contest is open to all newspapers, news services and news websites in the United States, including those without an ASNE member on staff. The contest runs December and January with announcements of winners in March.

There are no circulation divisions. News organizations of all sizes compete head-to-head in the contest’s nine categories.
