ENTRY FORM: Carmody In-depth Small Market

QUALIFYING ENTRIES: You may enter an investigative or explanatory feature, series or commentary on a single environmental topic, published between March 1, 2013, and Feb. 28, 2014, published in a newspaper, magazine, wire service, newsletter or online, or aired on TV (including cable) or radio. Series that begin or end during the designated contest period qualify in their entirety. Judges will want to see evidence of digging to uncover information that would be missed in a lighter treatment of the story. TV and radio entries must not exceed a total run or air time of 60 minutes; print and online entries must not exceed five parts.

LINKS AND FILES: Upload low-resolution PDF or radio mp3 files (20MB max each), or paste links to your stories. If you are uploading files, ignore the fields for links; if you are using links, ignore the fields for uploading files. Do not include a link AND a file of the same story.  Use only links that will not expire in 2014. If you are unable to upload files or paste links, you may prepare four copies of your stories according to SEJ Awards preparation rules

BROADCAST TRANSCRIPTS: Each radio, television and audio/video component of a website must include a complete transcript. Upload a separate PDF transcript for each broadcast story you enter.

CAUTION! As you complete the awards entry form, be sure to fill in all required fields. If you miss one, attached files will disconnect. Your other information will remain intact, but you'll have to attach your files again. 

PAYMENT: When the form is complete, you will be redirected to a secure payment site where you can pay instantly by credit card or opt to mail a check. Your entry will not be considered until payment is received.

Online entry forms must be received by April 1, 2014, midnight your local time. Shipped materials must be postmarked April 1, 2014. If you have questions, email Awards Director Chris Bruggers or call her at (502) 641-1844.
