IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING TICKETS

Please be aware that MediaConnect only provides complimentary tickets to journalists who have entered the coverage, beat and journalism award categories. No free tickets can be extended to the entrants in the media relations categories.

ENTRY CONTENT AND WORD LIMITS

We require the submission of up to four articles for titles and the Best Reviewer award, and three for individual awards.


All submissions should not exceed 6,000 words in total. For instance, you can choose to enter three 2000 word articles or four 1500 word articles. This has been made to decrease the time it takes to judge the awards and to introduce a standard way to judge editorial quality across all categories.

Please also note that all categories are open to journalism in all its forms, be it written, audio or visual. 
The awards are split into five categories, and full descriptions and criteria are available here.
This year's awards are as follows:
