MDDC Editorial Contest Categories Unveiled

Get your best work ready to submit to MDDC’s Editorial Contest! The editorial contest will begin accepting entries in mid-November and the entry deadline is January 27, 2015. The Editorial Committee has reviewed the contest categories and made a few changes:
• Replace Wild Card subject (category 13) with Extreme Weather – This category recognizes work by a reporter in covering natural storms that impact a community. Include all clips focused on a particular storm.
• Add Rookie of the Year – This award honors a new journalist with less than 18 months experience in the field. Submissions should include three to five clips of that reporter’s work and a letter of recommendation from his or her manager. Managers: Please be specific in what has impressed you about the reporter, and what he or she contributed to your publication(s).
• Add Social Media Reporting – Include screenshots of interaction between a publication and its readers regarding a particular story. This could be a breaking news situation (i.e. storm, barricaded suspect, accident, etc.), and should show a continuing effort by the publication to reach its readers in a timely and accurate manner.
