The nation’s oldest regional journalism contest is now open for the 69th time.

Because we like tradition, for 2019…

Members of the Society of Professional Journalists will still pay $40 per entry, while non-members will still pay $60 per entry. Those prices haven’t changed in more than a decade, and all college entries remain a measly $20 per.

Every dollar after expenses is spent on journalists like you, for all kinds of training programs. The Green Eyeshade directors are volunteers, as are the professional judges from all over the country.

WHAT IS THIS CONTEST? Since 1950, The Green Eyeshades have recognized the very best journalism in the southeastern United States – which now includes print, television, radio, and online.

WHO CAN ENTER? Journalists in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia

WHO RUNS THE AWARD? Southerners from the Society of Professional Journalists host The Green Eyeshade contest. Every dollar stays in the South, where it’s spent on SPJ programs.
