Get Your Oscar On
It’s Award season. You have the red carpet walk down, a night out on the town outfit in the closet and your speech memorized. Why not grab the award and make the night yours and enter the National Society of Newspaper Columnists annual column contest?
Like the artists honored by the Academy of Awards, you have a library of work. Your voice is not on the big screen but the painter of words. You are a writer, a columnist, a blogger. Your voice is read. The writer, the columnist and the blogger are also honored with awards.
Your award may be just around the corner but you’ll never know unless you thumb through your 2010 collection of work and submit the best of the best for consideration.
Deadline to enter the National Society of Newspaper Columnists annual contest is March 15, 2011.
Now may just be your year to walk the *red carpet*, pull that crinkled thank-you speech out of your pocket and make that award yours at the NSNC annual conference in Detroit, Michigan, June 23-25, 2011.
It’s time to get away from the computer, revisit your 2010 columns and blogs to enter. The time is now…
