The Omaha Press Club‘s annual contest seeks to recognize area journalists as well as public relations professionals for their hard work throughout the year. Submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. April 4.

New this year are three new categories: “Best In Show Television,” “Best In Show Radio” and “Best in Show Print.”

High school and college students, who have their own categories, may submit entries at a discounted price. For students, it costs $10 per entry or $50 for six entries. To enter, go to go BetterBNC, click on contestant login on the right hand side of the page, find the 2014 Omaha Press Club Excellence in Journalism awards on the drop-down menu, choose the media organization you represent and use bnc as your temporary password.
