Benjamin C. Bradlee Editor of the Year Award

The National Press Foundation established the Editor of the Year Award in 1984 to recognize significant achievements that enhance the quality of journalism in the United States. The award, open to an editor at any level, is made in recognition of imagination, professional skill, ethics and an ability to motivate staff -- qualities that produce excellence in media. The award is presented at the annual Awards Dinner.

Nominations are being accepted for this award from external parties as well as internally from award committee members. The top winner will receive $5,000 and honorable mentions will receive a cash award of $1,000.

In 2005, the award was named in honor of Ben Bradlee, who served as Executive Editor of The Washington Post from 1968 to 1991.

Nominations will only be accepted through the online form. The deadline to submit a 2014 nomination was 5 pm Wednesday, October 15, 2014.
