Awards of Excellence

The Atlanta Press Club would like to congratulate all our finalists and winners from our 2021 Awards of Excellence. Atlanta-area journalists were able to enter themselves or be nominated by someone else. Entries were judged by volunteers from the National Press Club and Investigative Reporters and Editors on quality of content, demonstrated reportorial skill and the impact of their work.

The Rising Star Award

Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame is an annual event that recognizes journalists for their lifetime achievements, whose careers represent the highest standards of journalistic integrity and ethics. They have made outstanding contributions either to journalism in Georgia, the country and the world at large, often courageously overcoming many obstacles to pursue, find and share the truth.
