The National Association of Black Journalists is calling for entries in its annual Salute to Excellence National Media Awards competition.
The national competition recognizes coverage of African/African-American people or issues, and is open to professional print, photo, television, radio and online journalists.
Entries are judged on content, creativity, use of medium and relevance to the black community. Categories range from television documentaries and newspaper investigative series to radio commentary and photojournalism.
Only work originally published or broadcast Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2007, is eligible. The deadline for entries is Feb. 20.
Finalists will be announced next spring and winners announced during the NABJ Salute to Excellence Awards Gala, scheduled for July during the UNITY ’08 Convention for Journalists of Color in Chicago.
