Miami (January 13, 2022) - The Inter American Press Association (IAPA) has informed media professionals in North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain that there are few days left until its Excellence in Journalism 2022 contest expires.
The IAPA recommends submitting entries as soon as possible to avoid difficulties that usually arise the week before the deadline.
Only those journalistic pieces published during 2021 in a daily, weekly magazine, or online publication will be considered contestants. The closing date for receipt of applications is January 30, 2022, at midnight.
A jury made up of the IAPA Awards Committee members will choose the winner in each category. The first prize in each category is US$2,000 (two thousand U.S. dollars). The awards ceremony will occur in October 2022 during the 78th IAPA General Assembly.
As it does every year, IAPA will award the Grand Prize for Press Freedom to a person or organization with significant achievements in favor of this cause.
