Entries are closed for 2021. Save the dates for the New England Newspaper Conference, which will be held on October 21 and 22, 2021. Although we hoped to see everyone in person, we’ll need to wait a little longer. The event will be held virtually.
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, 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.
NESNE member editors or news directors may submit one nomination of a journalist for a compelling story/series published or broadcast between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021.
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. Please submit digital entries. There is a fee of $50 per entry.
