2013 Chess Journalists of America
As we approach our annual USCF U.S. Open, we at the Chess Journalists of America once again send out a call for nominations to our Annual Chess Journalists of America Chess Journalism Awards. The CJA awards honor the best in all facets of chess journalism. From journalism in print to those written and published online, the most excellent in chess articles, columns, photojournalism, infographics, layout and online are honored within their respective categories. Recognized annually by their peers, the public and members of CJA, the prestigious awards showcase work in the categories listed below which were published between June 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.
Submissions must be received by
June 15, 2013.
Update: must be received by June 28, 2013.
CJA is the national not-for-profit body formed to encourage, promote, represent and influence policies as they relate to chess journalism. Membership is open to everyone, not necessarily only chess journalists, at an annual membership fee of $10. Award winners are presented with certificates and are acknowledged both in Chess Life and CJA's newsletter The Chess Journalist. CJA's Annual Chess Journalism Awards are also open to anyone and there is an entry fee of $15 (which includes membership or renewal to CJA) for the first entry and an $8 fee for each subsequent entry. For the Best Book category, the entry fee is $25 per book (no CJA membership is included). CJA is online at http://chessjournalism.org, for additional information on the awards or in joining CJA, please contact CJA Awards Committee Chairman Joshua Anderson at email@example.com. The awards winners will be announced at our annual meeting. Shortly afterwards the winners will be announced at http://chessjournalism.org and in other publications.
