A BENEFIT OF WJEA MEMBERSHIP! ANNUAL CRITIQUES & EMERALD AWARDS
It’s that time of year again! The end of the school year begins ramping up now and before we know it, the school year will be over. Advisers, it’s time to start thinking about submitting your publications to the Emerald Award contest and/or the WJEA Critique Service.
The Emerald Award is the highest award WJEA designates to its member publications and media organizations. Yearbooks, newspapers/newsmagazines, websites and broadcast programs are eligible to submit. Submissions for Emerald Award only (no critique) are $30. The Emerald Award is judged by a panel of professional journalists; no feedback is provided. The Emerald Award contest is ONLY open to member media organizations.
Media programs looking to get comprehensive feedback from critique judges may submit their media to the WJEA Critique Service. The cost for the critique is $40, but this also includes automatic entry into the Emerald Award contest. This critique is open to ANY student media, regardless of membership in WJEA.
Payment can be completed online starting now. Submission forms for both contest and critique will be released at the beginning of May. The deadline for submission is June 23.
