SPJ Invites Nominations for First Amendment Award

The Society of Professional Journalists is seeking nominations for its 2016 Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award.

The annual award honors an individual, group of individuals, or organization that has fought to protect and preserve one or more of the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment with a $10,000 cash award and an engraved crystal. The honoree(s) also will receive transportation and lodging (airfare and two-night hotel stay) to the society’s national convention.

Nominations are open to any person, persons, or organization in the U.S. or its territories that has worked to protect the basic rights provided by the First Amendment. Honorees do not have to be journalists, and the society encourages recognition of those outside the journalism profession for their First Amendment efforts and initiatives, such as (but not limited to) public officials, members of the legal profession, scholars, educators, librarians, students, and ordinary citizens. Nominations may be made by anyone, inside or outside the journalism profession.

For complete program guidelines, information about previous winners, and nomination instructions, see the SPJ website.
