Golden Press Card Awards

Golden Press Card Awards

Our annual awards program, the Golden Press Card Awards, is specifically for East Tennessee journalists, recognizing outstanding professional achievement and service to the community.

The biggest award is the overall best-in-show Golden Press Card. We also have the competitive Wells Community Service Award and our newest award: Only in East Tennessee.

The contest will open to all journalists in the East Tennessee area January 4, 2019. Any work published or broadcast from January 1 to December 31, 2018, is eligible for entry.
