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 is open to an editor at any level at any U.S.-based news organization. It recognizes imagination, professional skill, ethics and an ability to motivate staff -- qualities that produce excellence in media. The award and a cash prize of $5,000 will be presented at the NPF 40th Anniversary Dinner.
