Finalists for the 2018 Awards of Excellence will be announced on March 25, 2019. Finalists will be Atlanta-area journalists selected for their exceptional work throughout 2018.

The Awards of Excellence recognize individual journalists for quality work that makes an impact. All journalists who either work for Atlanta news outlets or who are based in Atlanta are eligible to enter for an Award of Excellence, and anyone is eligible to nominate a journalist for an Award of Excellence. All entries must be work completed in 2018.

Members of the National Press Club, the Alaska Press Club and Investigative Reporters and Editors will judge each entry to determine the finalists and winners based on the following criteria:
– Quality of Content
