Top of the Rockies is a regional, multi-platform contest for reporters and news organizations in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The contest grew from a Colorado-only contest on the heels of the closure of the Rocky Mountain News in 2009 to ensure a robust and competitive field. It is sponsored and managed by the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Colorado Pro.
Contest opens: Wednesday, Dec. 14. Contest closes: 10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25. Awards will be announced at the reception in April at the Denver Press Club.
Cost: $15 per entry
Note 1: You do not need to be an SPJ member to enter the contest, but we always welcome new members.
Note 2: The SPJ Colorado Professional Chapter board of directors does not allow entries in which content was subsidized by private businesses with an interest in the covered topic.
