Excellence in Journalism Contest Circulation Categories

The following is the list of circulation categories for the Excellence in Journalism contest, which is open for entries through Feb. 15, 2018. If you don’t see your media outlet listed here, please contact contest clerk Jessica Garin at jessica.garin.u@gmail.com, and we will add it.

These categories are based, in part, on media outlets’ advertised coverage areas and staffing levels. To petition for a change in circulation class, please contact Contest Chair Jodie Mozdzer Gil. The CTSPJ Board of Directors will consider all requests, and any approved changes will take effect in the next year’s contest season.
