Announcing the 2022 Battle Born Journalism Awards

Nevada journalists,

The Las Vegas chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is thrilled to announce the launch of our second annual Battle Born Journalism Awards contest.

From April 1 through May 15, we will accept entries for 10 contest categories, including three new categories: Education Reporting, Legislative Reporting and Spot News Reporting. Judging will be conducted by out-of-state volunteers selected by Greater Cincinnati SPJ.

As always, the contest is open to ALL Nevada-based reporters and Nevada publications. You don’t have to be a member of SPJ Las Vegas to enter.

The contest costs only $15 per entry for professionals and $10 for students. That money helps fund our annual $1,000 scholarship awarded to a Southern Nevada college student studying journalism.

Last year SPJ Las Vegas was honored to showcase some of the best journalism across Nevada in our inaugural contest. Now we’re excited to see the fantastic work you published during the 2021 calendar year.

You can find a complete list of contest categories and rules here. If you have any questions about the contest, you can reach us by email anytime at

We look forward to seeing your entries!
