Mark your calendar for the 2023 New England Newspaper Conference, a virtual event featuring the presentation of the Newspaper of the Year Awards on October 19.
This award is bestowed by the New England Society of News Editors, and it recognizes an individual for producing journalism of distinction in New England this past year.
The award is named in honor of Sevellon Brown, the late editor, and publisher of The Providence Journal-Bulletin, founder of the American Press Institute, a fellow of the Academy of New England Journalists, and past president and founder of New England Associated Press News Editors Association (NEAPNEA).
The competition is open to New England journalists of any kind; whether working for a daily, weekly, or specialty print publication, broadcast outlet, or online media.
Editors or news directors may submit one nomination of a journalist for a compelling story/series published or broadcast between June 1, 2022, and May 31, 2023.
There is a fee of $60 per entry.
Nominations should consist of a brief cover letter, supported by digital tearsheets or links to the text, photos, audio, video, or other elements of the story/series. All files must be saved as a PDF (except photos, audio, and video) and article pages should be submitted as one merged document not as individual pages.
