2024 Awards of Excellence

The Atlanta Press Club Awards of Excellence recognizes Atlanta-area journalists for the highest caliber work within a calendar year. Only work published in 2023 is eligible. Journalists may enter their own work or be nominated by someone else. Entries are judged by volunteers from other journalism organizations around the country on quality of content, demonstrated reportorial skill and the impact of their work. Members: $25 per entry; Nonmembers: $45 per entry. Submissions are open until March 1st. Winners will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in Spring 2024.

Summer Intern Applications Open!

2024 APC Summer Internship Program

Thanks to strategic partners and our annual sponsors, the Atlanta Press Club is able to provide our summer journalism internship program. APC pairs interns with many of Atlanta’s top news organizations, where they receive hands-on experience in writing and reporting. Interns will also receive a standard stipend (see application for more details). Internships will take place between June 3-August 9, 2024 (dates may vary by outlet). Summer internships may be a hybrid of virtual and in-person hours. The application deadline is March 1, 2024.

A note from our Board Chair, Keith Pepper!
