Newsies Awards

The 2018 Newsies Awards will be Friday, August 3

Vote for your favorite journalists and news outlets by July 3o!

More than 50 local journalists and more than a dozen news outlets were nominated for a Tulsa Press Club “Newsies” award.  Tulsa Press Club created the Newsies Awards several years ago to celebrate local journalists and support the organization’s mission to promote journalism in the Tulsa area through programming, scholarships and a clubhouse.

Hundreds of nominations were collected over the past few weeks for the Tulsa Press Club’s annual Newsies Awards. Now that nominations have been collected, the public can vote for their favorite journalists and news outlets online.

The Newsies ballot is available online here until July 30.
