It’s time for the 29th Annual NATJA Awards Competition! This year we have consolidated many of the categories due to the decline of printing and expansion of online publications. Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Committee recommended several categories that are inclusive of this initiative. Additionally, in consideration of the pandemic and its economic toll, we are reducing the fee this year for entries to $30 per entry for NATJA Media Members. All of the information is available online at www.natja.org
Our DEIA Committee just had its first meeting with several of our newly added members and we are now in the planning stages for a Town Hall later in the month to have a conversation on the various aspects of DEIA. Stay tuned!
From hurricanes along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts to the brush fires and smoke up and down the West Coast (including one near our office in the Angeles National Forest), our members continue to face many challenges this year. Our hope is that everyone is safe and that we will soon turn a corner towards better times, perhaps even enjoy the changing colors of the fall leaves.
Take care. Be safe. Wear a mask. Practice social distancing. Wash your hands!
