Deadline March 9th: 2018 RNA Awards for Religion Reporting Excellence

$10,000 in prizes // All media // 21 categories

COLUMBIA, MO, USA, March 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Don't miss the chance to submit your best work in the Religion News Association's Awards for Religion Reporting Excellence. The deadline is TOMORROW, March 9th. Journalists, authors, photographers and students are invited to submit their work for consideration, with more than $10,000 among 21 award categories up for grabs. Many categories require just one story for entry, and entrants are welcome to submit multiple entries.

NEW FOR 2018
Journalists at online news outlets will have a chance to enter an Excellence in Religion Reporting category for the first time in 2018. The new category joins those for newspapers, television, radio/podcasts, magazine and student journalists in honoring a reporter's body of work for the 2017 calendar year. The new online category is meant to honor journalists at online news outlets without a print or broadcast equivalent (examples may include Vox and The Daily Beast).

The newspaper categories were reduced this year by one and will now be calculated by daily circulation sizes rather than weekday circulations. The new categories are:

* Religion reporting: Small daily newspapers (daily circ. 1–50,000 // Cassels Award)
* Religion reporting: Mid-size daily newspapers (daily circ. 50,001–100,000 // Cornell Award)
* Religion reporting: Large daily newspapers & wire services (daily circ. 100,001+)

In addition, non-daily newspapers of all circulation sizes will enter their body of work in the new Excellence in Magazine and Non-Daily Newspaper Religion Reporting Award.

CATEGORIES
In all, entrants can choose from 21 categories, including eight multiple media awards that all media outlets are encouraged to enter. Each category awards up to three prizes: 1st ($250), 2nd ($150); 3rd ($100).
