Get your stories ready to enter the Philip Meyer Awards! We’ll be accepting entries later this month and we can’t wait to see what you enter.

To get a head start on the entry process, go ahead and renew your membership, start filling out the required questionnaire, and get your links and/or files ready to submit. When the contest opens, all you’ll have to do is complete our new form, attach your files and pay the $75 entry fee.

Three awards are given annually — a first, second and third place — to recognize the best work using techniques that are part of precision journalism, computer-assisted reporting and social science research. The awards are: $500 for first, $300 for second, and $200 for third.

The deadline to enter is November 17, 11:59 p.m. EST.

Awards will be presented at the 2020 CAR Conference in New Orleans on March 6, 2020.
