For All New Jersey Media Professionals

2010 Awards Competition

Each year, the Garden State Journalists Association's Memorial Journalism Awards brings together the year's best in print and broadcast journalism. In 2010, we celebrated our 63rd year of recognizing excellence in our field.

The annual contest is open to all reporters, editors and photographers (print and broadcast) who live, work in, or produce stories about New Jersey. Public relations categories are also included. In January 2011, our new awards entry form will be posted on this site.
