2020 inspires new award categories

The news-filled year that is 2020 has prompted awards programs to add special categories so newsrooms can highlight the work they did in an extraordinary year.

The Society of Professional Journalists is adding new categories on COVID-19, inequalities in society, and video game coverage. Read about that here.

The WBA Awards Committee is also adding some special categories for the 2020 awards contest. Those will be released in the coming week. Submissions will open on Dec. 1!
