Entries Wanted For The 2015 National Press Club Journalism Contest

Best in-depth political reporting in 2015 to be honored by Lee Walczak Award for Political Analysis

Political writers are invited to enter their best and most thoughtful stories on politics from 2015 in the National Press Club Journalism Contest.

The Lee Walczak Award for Political Analysis honors the best political analysis of the year and the winner gets a prize of $750.

This award is named in memory of Lee Walczak, a Washington editor, bureau chief and White House correspondent who worked for Bloomberg News and Business Week. It is funded through the support of McGraw-Hill Cos. Inc., Lee’s employer for 37 years, and by contributions from Lee’s family and friends.

The Press Club, a national leader among journalism organizations, encourages those who write about politics to enter the contest.

The deadline is April 1. Details on the different awards categories and how to enter the contest can be found by clicking here.

Entrants are encouraged to enter online, but the Club will accept mailed entries as long as they are postmarked before the deadline. Journalists are encouraged to submit their best work.

The awards will be presented at an annual awards dinner at the National Press Club this summer.

Other award categories include political reporting, regional reporting on Washington, international coverage, consumer reporting and online journalism. The contest also includes awards for areas as diverse as reporting on the welfare of animals, coverage of the journalism industry, the aviation industry, problems facing the elderly, and humor writing.
