Environmental journalism contest accepting entries [Worldwide]

Journalists who have completed environmental reporting may submit their work.

The Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) is accepting submissions for its annual recognition of excellence in environmental reporting. The awards honor journalists in seven different categories, including outstanding feature story, outstanding in-depth reporting, outstanding photography and best environmental book.

Journalists need not be environmental specialists to enter; reporters who cover other beats are welcome to submit their work on environmental topics. International journalists are also encouraged to enter, but if their work is written in a language other than English, they must include an English translation with their entry.

The fee for each submission ranges from US$40 for SEJ members to US$100 for non-members.

The winners in each category will receive US$500 in September at SEJ’s Annual Conference in Sacramento, California.

The deadline for submissions is April 1.
