The National Press Foundation established an important new award to recognize the federal government’s effect on business and economic life in America awarded for the first time at the 2011 Annual Awards Dinner. The award, named “the Feddie,” comes with a cash prize of $5,000 and lesser amounts to runners-up. An online application and instructions are posted over the summer with applications due early fall.
Applications should showcase work that shows originality, depth of reporting and an appreciation of economic issues involved at both the federal and local levels. This can be achieved through one story or a series of related stories. The submissions can be in any format – video, online, print or broadcast – and must have been produced between September 1, 2011 and September 1, 2012.
Entries will only be accepted through the online application form. The deadline to submit a 2012 application was 5 pm October 15, 2012. We will announce winners shortly.
